Festes - l'Entra de Christians

The highlight of the Fiesta Week, is the parade of the Moors and Christians. Starting at about 7pm, it goes on for about 5 hours. The troups (troops?) are dressed in stunning costumes, and each one is accompanied by a band. Many of them have defined leaders too, so there is quite a gap between them.

First of all, the Christians came through the town. Sadly, there was lots of drizzle, so we had to peer between umbrellas to see. (However, last year, it rained so heavily, the parade had to be suspended.)
