Correfocs are amongst the most striking of Catalonia's festive events: "devils" play with fire and with the people. These devils are not the incarnation of evil; they are sprightly and festive, dancing to the sound of the drums and the traditional gralla, while they set off their fireworks.
Correfoc, meaning "fire run" can come in many forms. Some are simple parades including fireworks and effigies of the devil. In Sitges it is common for a crowd to line a street, and participants run through a tunnel of fireworks.
