In Spain, many people eat late at night, starting between 9:00 and 11:00 pm and lasting through the early morning. There are often several hours between lunch, the end of the work day, and dinner. One of the most popular types of food to eat during those hours is tapas, which comes from the Spanish word “tapar,” or “to cover.” Tapas are basically small versions or portions of different Spanish cuisines, similar to appetizers or snacks.

Just don’t forget to bring some old clothes or a plastic poncho, because this festival is a messy one!
