Rev­el­ling in ridicu­lous­ness

Weekend Witness - - News -

Rev­ellers take part in the fes­ti­val of Els En­far­i­nats, in the town of Ibi near Ali­cante, Spain, yes­ter­day. The 200-year-old tra­di­tion is re­lated to the Day of the In­no­cents. In the day-long fes­ti­val, par­tic­i­pants, known as the Els En­far­i­nats, dress in mock mil­i­tary dress and stage a mock coup d’état, pro­nounc­ing a whole host of ridicu­lous laws and fin­ing cit­i­zens who in­fringe them. An­other group, called La Oposi­cio, tries to re­store or­der in bat­tles us­ing flour, eggs and fire­works. PHOTO: AP
