14 Els Enfarinats Festival Celebrated With Flour Fight In Ibi

Revellers take part in the battle of “Enfarinats”, a flour fight in celebration of the Els Enfarinats festival on December 28, 2012 in Ibi, Spain. Citizens of Ibi annually celebrate the festival with a battle using flour, eggs and firecrackers. The battle takes place between two groups, a group of married men called “Els Enfarinats” which take the control of the village for one day pronouncing a whole of ridiculous laws and fining the citizens that infringe them and a group called ‘La Oposicio’ which try to restore order. At the end of the day the money collected from the fines is donated to charitable causes in the village. The festival has been celebrated since 1981 after the town of Ibi recovered the tradition but the origins remain unknown. (Photo by David Ramos)
