Las Fallas 2012: The burning (Cremà)

Today is the last day of las Fallas in Valencia.  Last year when I went to las Fallas, I couldn't stay to celebrate the last day of the festival because I had to work.  The last day is significant; it's when they burn all of the gorgeous, expensive sculptures that artists spent all year making (it's called the Cremà).

So I don't have any photos of the Cremà, but I found some youtube clips.  Here's the burning of Da Vinci, one of my favorite fallas in 2012:

Here's another video of the burning of a Falla in Valencia in 2012:

Have you ever seen the Cremà at las Fallas?  What did you think?
