Undeniably the main event of the month long "Cruces y Fuegos" fiesta in Los Realejos is the notorious fireworks display in Los Realejos - granted National Tourist Interest status and considered one of the best in Spain.
Visitors flock from all over the island and even further afield to watch the much awaited for event which started way back in 1770 and this year, the fireworks display in Los Realejos will be taking place on Thursday the 3rd of May 2018 from about 9.30pm. The event goes on for a good three hours. Put it this way - you certainly won't be walking away thinking, "Is that it?!"
The fireworks display is actually an age old "amicable rivalry" between the two neighbourhoods located on the streets of Calle Sol and Calle El Medio Arriba. This annual explosive competition between the two neighbourhoods is called “El Pique”. Amidst the flashing and the thundering of fireworks overhead, the "Procesión de La Cruz" winds through the streets.
If you can't get here to see the fireworks display, you can visit La Oratava's Townhall Facebook Page which will be broadcasting it live.
The fireworks are made by the only firework manufacturers in the islands; Pirotecnia Hermanos Toste SL in Los Realejos, who started in 1788.
