It was held yesterday, but today and tomorrow there will more parades.
There are many good carnival groups.

As I said other times, it is unusual snow in the Region of Murcia. But after the storm of cold and snow of last week, and newly completed, some snow has fallen (you have to get it). And with bright sunshine (1°C), we can enjoy the snow.

People, in a democratic state, and after asking permission from the authorities, can manifest for several reasons. In the image, demonstration in defense of the football team Real Murcia, against the current owner of the team and the mayor.
Today is the Theme Day in the CityDailyPhoto community. And the selected theme is: what would you miss? If you'd have to left the city where you live.
Since the theme was announced, I had very clear that the image should be the Cathedral of Murcia, till today that I have realized that it really would miss (besides family and friends) is the day of the Bando de la Huerta. A day to enjoy the street with people. A day to return to huertano (literally: man of the orchard) past of the city and the municipality.

Since last year (2014), the factory and museum can be visited. In fact, it is having great success and has been visited in its first eight months open to the public for more than 8000 people, mostly from outside Spain. 70% of them are British and the rest are Germans, Dutch, French and Spanish. This year will be multiply that number, because only from March to May will pass 15,000 Austrian. And hundreds of cruisers will be added that the company expects to receive from mid-2015.
This is one of those streets that often go unnoticed, but it has very beautiful buildings. Very close to the Cathedral of Murcia (the tower is in the background).
The origin of Frenería name: The Frenería was a specialist in the manufacture of products of military trousseau trade. The name derives from the brakes: metal tools that are tied to the reins and placed in the nose of the horses.
I suppose, like other streets of Murcia whose name had its origin in the office in which there was, this street too.
