    To keep things simple and (hopefully) easier to follow, please use this thread for chat and news about the Mascletas, Displays and Pyro for the 2020 Las Fallas festival. (Well the main March week, at least.)

    For 2020 news and chat about who's going, flights & accommodation etc. we have a thread here:

    For La Crida 2020 we have a thread here:à-de-las-fallas.36144/

    So Benicalap looks a very interesting proposition this 19th March. Last years was pretty decent at 100kg, this year is set to have 225 kilos.
    Ricardo Caballer will be involved along with Víctor Pérez and Vicente Ferrer.

    Depending who is firing on the square there's an opportunity to see something new, scheduled for 14:45

    Last years:

    Location for information - 800m from Beniferri metro

    Is this the amount of powder? Pretty serious stuff.

    If your name is Usain Bolt maybe :D

    its around 4 kilometers from the square, but with 35 - 40 mins to escape the crowds in the square, jump on the next metro to beniferri and walk the other end is probably impossible ;)

    " This year will also see two NEW pyrotechnic companies taking part in the fallas calendar but it will not include Ricardo Caballer of Pirotecnia RICASA or Pirotecnia Europlá. However, RICASA will be opening proceedings in the Marina on February 29th at 8pm"

    Here's the mascleta & display news that's just reached me via my news feed from

    Mascletas at 2pm in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento
    13 March - Zarzoso
    14 March - Pirotecnia Valenciana
    15 March - Hermanos Caballer
    16 March - Turís
    17 March - Aitana
    18 March - Vulcano
    19 March - Caballer FX

    Night displays in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento
    March 13 (00.00) - Pirotecnia Valenciana - Night Mascletà
    March 14 (00.00) - Mediterranean - Night Mascletà (Mascletà de colores)
    March 15 (00.00) - Vulcano - Alba de les falles,
    March 19 Before the Crema - Caballer FX - Ramillete de colores

    Night displays at the Alameda old riverbed site
    16 March (00.00) - Zarzoso - castillo (To avoid confusion, Lasprovincias clarifies this as being the night from 16th to 17th)
    17 March (01.00) - Hermanos Caballer - castillo (Lasprovincias clarifies this as being the night from 17th to 18th)
    18 March (01.30) - Caballer FX - Nit del Foc (i.e. the night of 18th/19th)

    The same article also includes the news that, for the 2nd time in history, the last three shows of the Las Fallas season will directed by a woman. Maria Jose Lora, of Caballer FX, will take charge of the Nit del Foc, the 2pm mascleta on the 19th and the display before the Crema. Sounds good to me.

    Full news article, which also includes info for other dates, is here:

    So Vulcano and Tamarit are the new kids on the block - no pressure for Vulcano, only doing the L'Alba de les Falles and 18th Mascleta :eek: :D

    Just checked back.... we saw Vulcano do that wonderful 2pm Mascleta last year that included the red and yellow smoke mines.
    So who are the newcomers this year?
