Spain is known for having a lot of festivals. This was shot during the Fiestas In Honour of the Holy Blood held in Denia, Spain, in early July 2009. On this particular night of the festival, people ran down the main street of Denia with fireworks blazing. The street was filled with wall-to-wall people and the fireworks started at about 12:30 am.
