Correfoc / Fire-run in Barcelona

Catalans have some crazy traditions. One of them is the old pagan ritual called correfoc, which means fire-run. So people dress up as devils and dragons, light up firecrackers, wave them around spreading fire around people around you and then the crackers explode. And they light news ones again and you jump and run with, around and away from the devils. The madness is kind of hard to explain. Watch the video below of my last correfoc to get a bit better understanding what’s it all about.
