More Ninots! Today's turn are those from the 4th Category Hogueras, and we're starting to see an increase in quality (although the big jump will be in a few days):
And just to show how international the Hogueras can be (as if Obama appearing three times last year wasn't enough, lol!), how about we start out with one for the Twihards?

My, my! I think I like Kristen Stewart much better up on the screen opposite her dear Edward and Jacob in the Twilight movies than as a ninot! They definitely didn't catch her better side... ;o)
The only character more popular in the Hogueras than a "Star" is a politician, and Alicante's mayor Sonia Castedo sure gets a few chances of her own to shine, starting with this one:
|Ninot Hoguera La Condomina. Artista: Miguel Balaguer Nieto|
(lately there have been a lot of "public works" in the city and a lot of new gardens and flowers popping up in the roundabouts)
I think this is her again as a mermaid (due to the gardening and the "Alicante: guapa, guapa" which is her theme for the city):
|Ninot Hoguera Via Parc - Vistahermosa. Artista: Pablo González Devesa|
This one's a bit more original, it's called "Reflections":
|Ninot Hoguera Nou Alacant. Artista: Federico Molinero Sandoval|
Then there's a more traditional "Father Time":
|Ninot Hoguera Pol. de Babel. Artista: Armengol y Cimas|
and my favourite in this batch, a funky seahorse who looks like he could toot his own horn! ;o)
|Ninot Hoguera José Ángle Guirao. Artista: Juan Carlos Asensi Carrasco|
And for the kids?
Well here's a little fireman who seems to be having trouble controlling his fire hose:
|Ninot H.Infantil Puente Villavieja. Artista: José Luis Díaz Yelo|
and a group of musical spiders who look like they've escaped a Tim Burton movie!
|Ninot H.Infantil Barrio José Antonio|
Sleepy? This pair of musicians will wake you up bright and early every day during the Hogueras in the "despertà"!
|Ninot H.Infantil Bola de Oro. Artista: La Comisión|
Hmmm... methinks this poor Dracula has seen better days. Or is he just feeling left out of the current vampire frenzy? ;o)
|Ninot H.Infantil San Blas. Artista: Alejandro Cano Hernández|
Hey! Is anybody out there enjoying these ninots? I haven't gotten any feedback in days! :o(
Tomorrow: 3rd Category, and if I have time (to edit video) a little extra surprise...
