This celebration is part of the Spring Fiestas in Murcia, and will allow you to enjoy the typical customs and traditions of this fruit and vegetable growing region.

The “Bando de la Huerta” celebration comes on the first Tuesday after Easter, coinciding with the most important day of the Spring Fiestas. It consists of a parade of oxen-drawn carriages and booths from which the participants, known as "huertanos", throw food at the spectators. After the floral offering to the Virgen de la Fuensanta, the parade begins through the streets of the city, accompanied by local folk groups and associations.
