La Bajada de la Virgen de las Nieves y La Danza de los Enanos or The descent of the Virgin de las Nieves and the dance of the dwarves is a big celebration that only rolls around every five years, we had missed by a few months when we were in La Palma. Apparently there’s a 4am procession and men dressed as dwarves in big hats who dance the polka.
It seems like it’s their Olympics. Especially, as pretty much every shop was referencing the festival presumably to sell stuff, and usually with a picture or cut out of a little man in a big hat. There were so many I had to photograph them.
