One night a year, the streets of Bétera burn under the erratic fire of rockets or drunks. Their crazy whistles precede the passage of groups of coeters that dance excited to the rhythm of gunpowder until dawn. A unique tradition that goes back hundreds of years and whose difficult integration into contemporary society increases the threat of it disappearing.
