The Three Kings; January: The kids will love this glitzy procession, which sees a costumed trio of Christmas kings riding through the Costa Blanca’s main streets and distributing sweets among the gathered crowds.
Bonfires of Saint John (San Juan); June: The height of summer is marked in Alicante with a traditional fiesta, during which cardboard effigies are burned on giant bonfires and troupes of elaborately costumed dancers parade through the streets.
Benidorm Fiestas; November: Just when you thought the party season was over, Benidorm cranks up the fun factor with a week of exuberant celebrations. Fireworks, fairgrounds, illuminations, parades and theatrical performances take over the town to honour its patron saints.
