BANDO DE LA HUERTA
FIESTA DECLARADA DE INTERÉS TURÍSTICO INTERNACIONAL
FESTIVITIES AND TRADITIONS
11 ABR 2023
This is the most important day of the Fiestas de Primavera (Spring Festivities) of the city of Murcia. The celebration starts early in the morning with an offering of flowers to the Virgin of the Fuensanta, patron saint of the city. This offering takes place in front of the baroque façade of the Cathedral.
Thousands of Murcian people and visitors, dressed in traditional Murcian clothes: huertano costumes, accompany the Virgin during a short walk around the city centre and, especially, will bring life to the huge parade which will go across the streets of the city in the afternoon. As well as this great parade, you’ll be able to enjoy ox-drawn waggons, folkloric groups of all the "peñas huertanas" (huertano groups), and rolling barracas (stands) from which broad beans, black puddings and sandwiches are thrown to the spectators.
