In true Carnival spirit a confetti storm was unleashed by Tarragona’s very own Pipel Entertainment! You just had to surrender to the inevitable, confetti in your hair, nose, mouth, shoes, home, shower, sleep, dreams…everywhere.
This is the first ever year a confetti storm has hit Tarragona, and, well, you got to start somewhere. The slightly subversive Pipel Entertainment is behind some brilliant initiatives which are at the heart of many festival here, and the share enthusiasm which goes into anything they put their paws on is infectious. The idea is to take something traditional and give it a twist and this includes rock concerts at the Cathedral.
So Amparito Roca, the Santa Tecla anthem, blasts out in the winter night and people run, dance and roll around in the paper snow before it’s all cleared out for the Baixada del Pajaritu tomorrow. Carnival in Tarragona is on a roll!
