When we were in Spain recently, we visited the small town of Alcoi near Alicante on St. George's Day (23rd April).
Every year from 22nd to 24th April, the town holds a Moros y Cristianos (Moors and Christians) festival to remember the Moors being driven from Spain by the army of St. George (St. Jordi). The three day festival features parades, mock battles and other events.
Thesse lads were playing football in the street just in front of where we were waiting for the parade. There is no motion blur added to the ball, no I did not move out of the way (!) and yes, it missed me (just!).
Note the solitary spectator.
