Fiestas del Pilar

Fuegos Artificiales Fiestas del Pilar 2009

Brilliant images from the Fiestas del Pilar in the Spanish town of Zaragoza. This festival attracts about 1.5 million people from around the world every year on the 12th of October. Originally a religious festival based on a belief that Virgin Mary appeared to Saint James standing on a pillar. Like all good traditions it has evolved into a large drinking competition and everyone has a great time partying on the streets and enjoying the many sights and sounds of the celebration.

The party lasts for about 9 days normally and no one is left out of the entertainment, the many bars and restaurants around the town are full of revellers and the surrounding neighbourhoods contribute with their own fireworks displays. Throughout the celebrations there is music, dancing and drinking in good measures. If you are stuck on where to party this October get yourself to Zaragoza.
