14th-15th of March:
The plantà. The monuments are “planted”. All of them, the adult category and the children’s category must be finished before the 16th of March at 8:00 o’clock. A jury evaluates them.
17th of March:
The jury gives the prizes to the different Fallera Commissions.
18th of March:
The offering of flowers to the Mare de Déu del Desamparats, patron saint of the Valencia. It is a very emotional event. Each faller offers the virgin a bouquet of flowers, and they are used to do a spectacular cloak of flowers.

The fallas are burned and this is the end. This fetival ends with fireworks before burning each falla.
