Part of the problem was that I had a hell of a time choosing only a few photos (click on them for better viewing) to put here as Blogger isn't unfortunately the best spot to share pictures... So for those interested in seeing more, there a link at the bottom to an album on Flickr. I'll post two more groups (nightime shots and Moors) over the next couple of days.
If you haven't seen my previous entry on this rather unique Alicante festivity, it's in the Blog's April Archive, or you can just click here.
Today's selection are from the "Entrada Cristiana" on Sat. April 18th, in San Vicente del Raspeig (small town next to Alicante, Spain). The two groups with "extra" roles are at either end: Los Astures (representing a northern Spanish "kingdom") with the "Captanía" and Los Maseros (representing farmers etc.) with the "Alferecía".
Some of the dancers (peacocks!):
the Captain's "avant-garde":
The Captain and his lady:
Troups from other "comparsas":
Participants of all ages!
I hope you enjoyed them! The rest of this grouping can be found in my Flickr album:
They tell a much more complete story so go check them out!
