Faelles is a yearly block party that lasts three weeks in Valencia, Spain. 700 block associations raise money all year to hire professional sculptors to create unique works of art that are often tinged with political, religious, social commentary. During this time, the entire city is largely shut down with all day street parties, fireworks, and mayhem. Here are some of the photos I captured on during Faelles 2020. I will update this thread with more as the festival continues

Beautiful - but enough with the ladies . . . ;)
I was at Las Faelles in '66 - back in the old days - ha!
Still one of the most amazing experiences of my life - the stories I could tell!
Would love to see some photos of the sculptures and of the fires when they go off. Be careful - they get crazy! My girlfriend and I nearly got trampled in a panicky crowd. But maybe they have it more under control now. :p
Churros and hot chocolate - mmmmmm!!

I think i was very lucky to capture these images because this morning we were informed that Faelles 2020 is postponed to late June because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
