Those dressed as leprechauns on the Cuc-Pardal rock parade, with their colourful Saint Patrick’s day costumes in a multitude of shades of green, were the winners of La Nucia’s 2022 Costume Parade competition.

This year, 19 parades took part in this traditional costume parade of the “Festes d’Agost” in which 100s of people congregated along the Avenida Marina Baixa.

Having been two years since the last celebration of this kind due to the covid pandemic, La Nucia’s Costume Parade returned in full force as one of the most important events of the “Festes d’Agost”. The event had the biggest turnout in the whole region of la Marina Baixa.

In 2019, the last time the event was held, only 12 parades took part. Themes for the parades this year included “Transformers”, “Mario Kart”, “Beer”, “Game of Thrones”, “Aladdin” and “Saint Patrick”.
