Festa Poble-Sec 2010
Poble-Sec might not have a festival that is as popular as those of Gracia and Sants but with its agenda this year, it’s sure catching up. From kids to the elderly, anyone can find something of interest at this year’s celebrations with a program that includes children’s workshops, sporting events, swap markets and several types of contests. The music blasts with rock bands 9 Son, Rauxa and Canteca de Macao. If you’re just looking for a good party, walk up and down carrer Blai and catch plenty of great Djs. Karaoke or dance to rumba at Platja Paladaries beach themed activates. And of course, no festival would be complete without Catalan traditions. Get a taste of real Catalunya with castellers (human towers) and correfocs ( “fire-runs” with people who dress as devils and light fireworks). With such an extensive line-up, this year’s festival leaves you unable to decide on what to catch.
