La Noche Coruñesa will be filled with lights all day on August 14 to mark the Ecuadorian city’s summer celebration. The fireworks show recreating the battle between A Coruña’s defenders and English troops in May 1589 always brings thousands of people together at Orjón Cove, and this one was no exception.
Before the fireworks start in the afternoon, there are already many lovers of these celebrations, who hasten to make a hole in the best views and most relaxing spots on the promenade, even less so in Dudaron. Clean people too. Visit the Arena de las Playas to see it.
The cutting of the traffic lane favors the congregation in this place of innumerable public, who do not hesitate to go year after year to contemplate it, despite the tradition of the quote. And it is that the pyrotechnic artisans have been able to surprise with new effects in each edition of the battle that highlights the battle between the Huastes led by María Pita on the one hand and Francis Drake on the other.
Explosions of light of all shapes and colors as well as a roar of explosions filled the sky during the 21-minute duration of the battle, which once again ended with unanimous applause from the aides. From locations in Ensenada, the intersection of Esclaves, and in front of Finca de los Marino, the imaginary contenders shot the Quince Andanadas, which contained more than 6,000 projectiles and 735 kg of pyrotechnic material. In addition to coordinating the launch, the company responsible for the show is likely to use new technologies to reproduce the confrontation between defenders and attackers with the largest possible attendance. In the end, because it could not be otherwise, Maria Pita and Suyos imposed themselves on the British in a new, victorious veil.
After the end of the fighting, the festival now begins its second phase, with new concerts and proposals both in the center and in the neighborhoods, which these days also celebrate their own summer festivals.
