The Festa Major de Mollet del Vallés changes
In 2017, the Festa Major de Mollet del Vallés developed the family activities and the “street” events, like says the Barcelona City Council. And all of it without ignoring the night spirit of a lot of proposals and cultural and traditional events linked with the celebration.
The children will find activities such as “matinales” in the morning, which are games and workshops which main theme this year is water. A funny and refreshing way to fight the heat in the Parc de les Pruneres. But they are not only youth events, since clown performances, magic shows and, of course street shows and giants are also programmed. You will also find outdoor film sessions and gymkhanas, among other options.
Among the most highlighted street activities there are the cyclist race, popular vermouth tasting and, especially, colles de sardanes and balls vuitcentistes traditional performances, among other things. In addition, this Festa Major de Mollet celebrates a very symbolic birthday: the Castellers of the town turns 25 years as group, that is why they will celebrate a diada castellera on Sunday 20th at 6:00 pm in the Plaça Prat de la Riba, as well as other events.
And all of this with the help of the traditional festive battle between the two big colles (human towers) of Mollet del Vallés: theMorats and theTorrats which will compete to entertain the celebration with test that any Festa Major visitor can participates in.
