The virtual Winter Festival to remember the Coso Blanco of other years

Start of the Coso Blanco de Salou 2020

Salou. Costa Dorada. 31 January 2021.
Or 20 guns to shoot 25 you tons of confetti, and 10 bridges of light , or 120,000 watts of sound , or 30 floats , or 2,500 people disguised or fun stop for 30,000 people enjoying live one of the festivals more participatory: the Coso Blanco in Salou. In 2021 the current COVID situation does not allow us to celebrate the Winter Festival of the capital of the Costa Dorada as always, and even less the most unique and genuine confetti battle. However, the Salou City Council has proposed to celebrate the Winter Festival in a virtual way. 

In this new approach, Salou will remember the Coso Blanco of previous years with a session that can be followed on YouTube. It will be on the usual date of celebration of the party, February 6, since it is the first Saturday of the second month of the year. From 20h, on the YouTube channel of the City of Salou, "Coso Blanco in live" will be broadcast , a session of special music by DJ Moncho, with tracks and remixes to remember the years of l Coso Blanco. 

On Thursday, February 4, there will also be a virtual act to honor the almost 2,500 people from the 30 troupes from various entities of Salou who would have paraded through the main streets of the capital of the Costa Dorada . Without them, the Coso Blanco would not have celebrated the 40 years of the party in 2020. This tribute will consist of a video with images of different troupes participating in the battle of confetti in previous years. 

As noted by the mayor of Salou, Pere Granados, "we wanted to t odes people can recall the big and beautiful memories you have got to create in all of us, the Coso Blanco". 

Coso Blanco for children and youth
COVID also requires that the children's version of Coso Blanco, the “Coso Blanco Xic's”, which will be on Friday, February 5, is also carried out in virtual format. In this case, the proposal is that the boys and girls of Salou record a video explaining what they like the most about the party and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #CosBlancXics2021. With all the recordings received, the Department of Children will edit a video that can be viewed on February 5. In addition, all participating boys and girls will raffle a smart speaker.
In addition, the Xic's children's club has organized various workshops and activities so that the little ones and their families can do them at home. Proposals will be published as of Monday, February 1, 2021 and the creations made can be sent by email to [email protected]. 

For young people in the municipality, the Youth Council has prepared a gymkhana that will take place between February 1 and 7. Participants must pass 5 of the 7 tests prepared to participate in the draw for a smart speaker. In order to participate, it will be necessary to register in advance , follow the instructions on the Salou City Council's Youth Instagram account and use the hashtag #CosBlancJove.
Popular culture in Salou 

But the Winter Festival has other elements apart from the White Coso. That is why an exhibition of all the festive elements of Salou (the giants, the bigheads, the Mulassa, the Morena ...) has been prepared in the wide corridor of the Salou Auditorium Theater (TAS), which can be viewed from outside the venue. 

In addition, as of February 2, you will be able to see a video disseminating these festive elements and the more traditional acts that they star in, such as parades, dances and other performances. 

On the same date the public can download the calendar Salou popular culture, including posibilitad to paint and decorate all elements holidays displayed. These creations can be shared on Instagram with the hashtag #asaloufemfestaambsalut. 

We still have to add to the virtual program of the Winter Festival, the activity that the Municipal Library of Salou has prepared from February 1 to 4. It will be to find, identify and unmask the festive elements have been mixed with confeticon to s of the Coso Blanco. 

The only face-to-face activity will be the exhibition of local artists that can be visited at Torre Vella from February 3 to March 31. Visiting hours are from Monday to Saturday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., except holidays, but keep in mind that the capacity is limited to 6 people.
This atypical Winter Festival and Coso Blanco in Salou will end on Sunday, February 7 with the magnificent fireworks display to which the City Council has accustomed us, which can be followed with another video that will also include the traditional devil dance and the beasts of fire in the correfoc or parade of fire.
