“Fallas”, meaning fire, is the biggest annual street festival in Valencia. It is the most sensational and best known festival in Europe where there is enthusiastic participation in street parties, bullfighting and burning of structures and figurines usually portraying political leaders, film stars and other famous people made of wood, wax and papier mache.
Paella, a dish made with rice, is the most typical meal of the Spanish cuisine and every opportunity is taken to enjoy it. For many years, a Paella cooking contest is organized by the Shipping and Logistics industry during the festival. The contest took place on March 12 this year where a total of 250 paellas were cooked with an attendance of over 6,000 people. Globelink Uniexco, together with other companies of the Logistics sector had a very significant participation in the Paella cooking contest.
