For interesting photos of the various festivals, see this link and this link. Even the actor Antonio Banderas participates (see link). The most interesting new photo I have seen is of a unique medieval procession in the Catalonian region of Spain in which figures of death carrying scythes seem to dance in procession. The scythes are labelled: "Nemini Parco," which, in Latin, means "I spare no one." Very true.
