València will once again have an international pyrotechnics competition

The mayor Joan Ribó announces that the festival will be held coinciding with the 9th of October

The mayor of València and candidate for the Commitment to re-election, Joan Ribó, announced this morning that he will recover the international pyrotechnics competition that was held several years ago in the city and that its celebration is scheduled to coincide with the 9th of October , dyad of the Valencians.

"We want to develop traditional pyrotechnics, but at the same time introduce new techniques such as those seen in the shot that was made in the Harbor. We want to make València a great showcase for pyrotechnics", Ribó explained, to remember that in the mandate that now finishes have been increased and diversified the pyrotechnic shows, has increased the budget for "a sector with great economic return", has asserted the candidate.

The mayor, however, has not yet clear the place where it would be held, since the shot that was held in the Harbor caused a monumental traffic jam because the accesses and exits to the port area are not the most appropriate. "We have to see which would be the most suitable location," he explained.

In an event held in the Plaça de la Crida, in front of Serrans Towers, Ribó has drawn the main lines of the Compromís program in terms of Fallas and its sustainability, as well as popular culture and neighborhoods.

On Fallas and sustainability, the mayor has ensured that one of the commitments after being declared the Fallas intangible heritage of humanity "is to move towards more sustainable Fallas." And that means talking about the material with which monuments are built, betting "on those who have traditionally used" against the white cork (waarschijnlijk wordt hiermee 'piepschuim'/polystyreen bedoeld) that has been imposed in recent times because it is cheaper, but also polluting.

In that sense, Ribó has said that they want to "introduce inducements" so that artists work with "organic" materials. "It would be a kind of green buñol, although the denomination is provisional, and those who bet on these materials would be financially incentivized, not to punish those who use materials such as cork, but to encourage the use of wood, paper-cardboard , etc. ", the candidate clarified.

"Sustainability is also working for the rest of the people in Fallas", added Ribó, who has ensured that they will continue with their program of aid to soundproof Falles or work "to minimize the use of containers that are thrown away and we will encourage them to use reusable glasses. " It has also committed to the next camp, "consensus with all agents" such as this year already clearly includes the prohibition of holding verbenas next to monuments of great heritage value, such as the Llotja or Santos Juanes.

The cultural policies, in general, and festive culture in particular, "will continue to be decentralized and reaching the neighborhoods, as we have already managed to do on multiple occasions thanks to cycles such as Cultura a los Barrios and in the towns or the Gran Feria de Valencia ", Ribó has warned. Christmas has also allowed us to see Christmas decorations in many neighborhoods and towns of Valencia, well illuminated with Christmas trees that have created a pulse of attraction and social, economic and cultural dynamism to the neighborhoods. "Things do not happen only in the center or only for a privileged few, culture is now for everyone", explained Ribó, who also announced a new increase in lighting in the neighborhoods " Help the small business in its most important sales campaign of the year ".

This day of Thursday will continue Ribó in the afternoon, with a visit to the neighborhood of Safranar, where he will participate in a walk along with neighborhood representatives and other members of the candidacy of Compromís for Valencia for the elections on May 26. The start of the walk is planned in the street of Professor Blanco (5:30 pm).

Even voor mijn beeldvorming.
Normaal is die dag gewoon een nationale aangelegenheid met mascleta en avondshow, maar nu komt er een festival (op 1 avond???) ipv de avond show?

Alleen weten ze nog niet waar, omdat de vorige keer het verkeer vast liep bij de haven?

9 Oktober word er een Valenciaanse feestdag gevierd met een mascleta. 8 Oktober staat eigenlijk los van die festiviteiten.

Ze willen het festival nu weer een kleine beetje in ere herstellen wamt er zijn jaren geweest dat er al 2 dikke shows werden geschoten. Gaan we nog verder terug in de tijd dan kom je zelfs een avond met 3 a 4 shows tegen.

Hopelijk volgend jaar pas? Mn meis en ik hebben net een beetje besloten dit keer toch niet te gaan :oops:.
Hoewel we met een sleurhut op het zuiden aan willen, richting zon, dus zou Valencia nooit een slechte keuze zijn ;)

Die castillos begonnen de afgelopen jaren om middernacht, als ik mij goed herinner. Dus feitelijk hadden die ook op 9 oktober plaats. Eerste keer dat ik er kwam, jaar of vijf terug, was meteen de laatste keer dat er twee opeenvolgende shows werden geschoten. Kwartier Europla, minuut pauze, kwartier Ricasa. En dat bij 21 graden luchttemperatuur. Lekker hoor.
