Festes de Gràcia 2011

The Festes de Gràcia festival is celebrated each year in the Gracia neighborhood around the 15th of August. It’s probably the best local festival in Barcelona programing concerts, children’s activities, exhibitions and art workshops, food tasting … However if something attracts thousands of visitors each year are the beautiful and original decoration on streets and squares.

Residents and retailers work during several months to build a themed based decoration. Made with recycled materials, these constructions compete for official prizes: best entrance, best roof, best lighting, etc.  You can have a glimpse of this year’s  decorated streets on my flickr:
