There are celebrations that although they tell you, if you are not there to enjoy them they are difficult to understand. Failing that, the best is usually a video true?. If I already tried to dive into the festive maelstrom that floods the Villa del Adelantado on Saturday of Carnival, when the Galiana Descent is celebrated in Aviles. now it is the turn of the Burial of the Sardine, which you have a photo album on the Facebook page of Viajablog.

A few days ago I explained the origins (and never better used the plural, because there is no unanimously accepted origin) of the Burial of the Sardine, celebration that, despite the name so dire, is the last act of fun and party popular before the rigors of Lent.

It begins with the music of charangas, continues with a procession that is anything but funeral and the final point is placed by the acidity in the verb of the one who reads the testament of the Sardine, which usually ends up flying through the air (the Sardine, not the one who reads the testament).

In Gijón and Avilés the party is lived in a similar but different way and here I leave you a video (excuse the quality of some of the images, it is what it has to shoot at night, although the camera is great) that attests to it, with its mourners, their quirky characters and his music:
