Revived in 1996, the Sant Julià falles are similar to other Andorran falles, although they do have some unique features. The celebrations begin with the collection of the Canigó flame in the Casa de la Vall at 7 p.m., followed by the descent of falles to the Plaça de la Germandat. The central act is the procession of adult and adolescent fallaires who accompany the Flame of Canigó. The first part begins at 10:30 p.m. in the Rocacorba quarter and ends with the dance of the fallaires in the Plaça de la Germandat. The second part begins in the Plaça de la Germandat and ends in the Prat Gran park with a speech and the lighting of the bonfire at midnight. What makes the Lauredian falles unique is that the fallaires dress in red and whirl twin balls of fire. As in Andorra la Vella and Escaldes-Engordany, children are schooled in the tradition by whirling so-called light falles, balls of light that change color as they are whirled. As in other Andorran villages, there are traditional workshops to make the falles out of birch bark. Likewise, there is a competition to select the Senior fallaire.
