Fireworks Night in Alcalá 2015

Fireworks Night in Alcalá 2015

The justly famous Alcalá fireworks take place tonight, Saturday, 15th August, from midnight. Part of the town's Fiestas in honour of the Virgen de Candelaria, the Toste Brothers have been putting on this display - one of Tenerife's, if not the Canary Islands', biggest - for almost a century, with interruptions only for the Spanish Civil War and WWII.

Half a ton of explosives will be used during the 25 minute display, which says Celedonio Toste in La historia de los Fuegos de Alcalá de Guía de Isora (The History of the Alcalá Fireworks) are one of the most difficult to set up technically as most of the explosives must be loaded into boatsin addition to carrying over 2,000 sandbags between 20 and 30 kilos each, to make safe housings for the explosives on the rocks around Alcalá bay. This represents about two or three days of work.
