Innocent Fun in Ibi

By Linda Tancs

What’s a little flour, egg and a firecracker or two among friends?  The southeastern Spanish town of Ibi sponsors a food fight each year on 28 December to commemorate the Day of the Innocents.  The 200-year-old Els Enfarinats festival requires participants to dress in mock military uniforms as they take over the city for the day and threaten infidels with flour, eggs and fireworks.  The day is the equivalent of April Fool’s Day in the U.S.
