Once experimented with and abandoned, the Albà de les Falles tradition was retrieved only recently.
Castillos de Fuegos Artificiales
Firework displays were officially incorporated into the Fallas events programme for the first time.
Falla Na Jordana initiated the tradition, launching a small firework display on the eve of the fallas mayores’ Plantà. The event was then named Nit de l’Albà (Night of the Dawn).
Other committees join
The city’s committees joined in this unison firing, repeated for its second year.

After not having been celebrated for 49 years, Falla Na Jordana successfully proposed to recover the tradition.
Albà de les Falles
The name of the event was officially changed to Albà de les Falles (Fallas Dawn) to avoid confusion with the Nit de l’Albà celebrated in Elche in August.
