This is a parade of floats made entirely of fresh flowers and is really worth seeing. The floats take the shapes of things like cartoons, current events figures, or whatever the builders feel like!

There are floats for everyone. This year, there might be up to six winners vying for the prize of 12,000 euros. The amazing task of sticking all the individual flowers to the floats is a sight worthy of a visit in itself. I hope you like it!

A worthy festival

The Battle of Flowers has been taking place for over 100 years in the town of Laredo. The whole town turns out for the celebration. The neighbors organize into groups then design and build floats covered with flowers and petals.

The most fascinating thing is to see is the building of the floats the night before. They need to attach the flowers at the last minute so they don't wither, and it's really a magical sight. It's a truly worthy festival and is held every year on the last Friday of August.

Flower battle

For 102 years, a very special festival of national interest has been held in Laredo, Cantabria: the Battle of Flowers. The locals in Laredo come prepared and find the best flowers in the surrounding meadows to cover their floats.

In the background of the photo, you can see Salvé, Laredo's main beach and home to the new port opened in March 2011.

This is an awesome party where light and color come together in floats decorated with thousands of flowers and petals, creating true works of art. The work of months is finished in one night when the flowers are nailed and glued to the floats one by one. Amazing, really.

A magical night that happens once a year in this beautiful seaside town of Cantabria. The sky colored tie as the beach and the town of Laredo living one of its most well-known festivals. Certainly, a whole experience.

Fuegos de artificio

Una noche mágica que ocurre una vez al año en este precioso pueblo costero de Cantabria. El cielo se tiñe de colores mientras la playa y el pueblo de Laredo viven una de sus fiestas más conocidas. Sin duda, toda una experiencia.
