Who needs to go to Disneyland or any other theme park when there's Festa Mayor de Gracia? Every year from the 15th to the 21st of August, the neighbourhood of Gracia turns into a 'themepark' itself with streets decorated colourfully and abundantly. Locals spend weeks of preparing this incredible form of art by collecting plastics and cartons and creating the most impressive street decorations from these collectibles. Young and senior citizens gather in this neighbourhood yearly to enjoy some of its best art. For food and music lovers there will be a wide variety of the neighbourhoods best dishes and live music.
