This artwork is dedicated to all kind of fiestas around the world.

Fiestas usually occur in Spain, Latin America, and the Philippines and can be celebrated for religious or carnival purposes.

A few words about the most popular events - Spanish Fiestas:

Spanish Fiestas symbolise the very essence of Spain and the Spanish people. They're colourful, vibrant, usually extremely noisy, often chaotic and always great fun. The origins of many of the country's countless fiestas lie in religious feasts, often honouring a patron saint.

Of all the crazy Spanish fiestas throughout the year, there is nothing wilder than the Carnival celebrations in late February. The week leading up to Lent is a time for wild partying in some parts of Spain when the country plays host to Europe's biggest and best Carnival festivals.

Carnival in Spain is celebrated nationwide though the most raucous festivities are in the Canary Islands, Cadiz and Sitges. While each town has its own unique flavour of celebration, they all have a devotion to having a good time. In these main destinations during Carnival, no one sleeps as the drinking and dancing go from dusk until dawn. You'll see extravagant costumes and people in masks everywhere and, in any of Spain's Carnivals, you'll have a lot more fun participating in the masquerading than you will watch.

La Tomatina tomato fight in Buñol near Valencia happens every year on the last Wednesday in August though the partying starts earlier in the week. The festival's highlight is the tomato fight between 11 am and 1 pm on that day. The event has become one of the most famous on Spain's summer festivals calendar, with thousands of people flocking to this little Valencian town for this chaotic event.
