On Saturday morning we paid a visit to check out street decorations in Gràcia. Here are some photos of the brilliant pirate theme, which deserved a better place than it achieved.
After street decoration winner Carrer de la Fraternitat, the next street we visited at the Festes de Gràcia had a pirate theme.
My wife told me that the street committee had got very angry about their position and had walked out of the prize ceremony in a huff.
Whether that's true or not, it definitely was an excellent effort and the decorations were full of life and humour, although they possibly got penalised because so many human figures is a little over-ambitious.
