Lots of confetti + lots more confetti + music + people + more confetti + costumes + beer = Cós Blanc

In the small coastal town of Salou it snows only once a year, always on the first Saturday in February. But the snow in Salou is not as we know it, it’s much better.

Cós Blanc is a surreal experience, and I can think of no better way to start my new blog. On this night 20 tonnes of confetti shoot out of 20 cannons along the main street while a parade of carnival floats and bizarre costumes takes place. Thousands of people come to watch and throw confetti at each other. Expect to find confetti on your clothes for the next 4 months and on the floor of your house for as long as you live there. Also, be warned: if you buy a giant litre of beer you WILL get confetti in it and you WILL drink it anyway!
