'Fallas' is a typical Spanish festival. It  in the Valencian region, in the east of Spain. This festivity  St. Josheph, who is the Saint patron of carpenters. The 'Falleros' (people who take part in the festival)  the traditional costume and they parade along the streets dancing to the music. Big monuments or Fallas  in the streets and a notice with some criticism about the local affairs   for each set of figures.  The locals and the tourists  the monuments and   the parades.
On the night of March 19th, St. Joseph's Day, these monuments .
In the old times, the monuments   by the carpenters and people of the neighbourhood, who   out old or broken items of furniture, clothes or whatever flammable objects and  them artistically. Later,  Fallero Artists   to build the Falla, and they  to use wooden frames and cardboard to make figures of people and things, to which the critical notes  .
Nowadays the technique is very different: the Fallero Artist  the design of the Falla, and then this information  into a computer, which then  polystyrene planks to form the shapes. Then the pieces  together and painted. This technique  by everybody: although the monuments still look very artistic, some people  that there is no art in programming a machine, and they also argue that the polystyrene is much more polluting.
