We did start the fire

Dress in white color, it’s the Fiesta code

One of the characteristics of the fiesta is that everyone dresses up as they please…, but in white gear. This is not an inconvenience but rather one of the inside ways of becoming more intimate with the fiesta spirit and allowing you to party better by mixing in better with the rest of the crowd. So, the first piece of advice is to dress in white trousers or shorts or whatever, – in white – and also with a white shirt, tee shirt, or whatever. A minimum item and pretty much a must is the characteristic red necktie. All the clothes stores are selling in Kukuxumusu before and during the fiestas and they are also widely available at street markets.

In addition, it pays to wear some good quality footwear. Flip-flops and sandals are not very suitable as it is easy to step on broken glass or simply have people step on you as there are big crowds just about everywhere.
