Batalla de Flores de Laredo, SpainThe Batalla de Flores de Laredo takes place in Cantabria, Spain, August 24, 2018.

It’s been held on the last Friday in August almost every year since 1908.

Fanciful floats of fresh flowers battle for prizes in the annual parade, which steps off about 5:30 p.m.

There also are a range of street markets and musical performances, until finally the jury chooses the best float of the year. After the announcement, the festivities continue until nightfall when they end with a spectacular fireworks display.
