Toquen A Correr

Every year, Tossa de Mar hosts a strange event where people skip arm in arm through the streets to sardana music. According to my friend, Alberto Barcia, the legend involves a young lad who is tasked to buy vinegar-wine by his mother, but along the way he drinks it. A devil makes an appearance and the boy has to dance nine times to sardana music to work off his offence. At the end of the festival, the dancers are dowsed by the locals from upper floor windows for reasons that remain mysterious to Alberto and myself at this moment.

So I went up to Nacho and Leslie's place to see how the dowsing is done.

Valle, venga.
