'Diada del Roser' – a great day for 'Xicots' and guests

Xicots de Vilafranca - the second team of human tower builders in Vilafranca del Penedès - have had a difficult season, not the least since quite a few of its former members now make up the core of the third team, Colla Jove Xiquets de Vilafranca, of this relatively small town. Having said that, during Diada del Roser, on October 30, Xicots managed to round off this year in the best possible way: by completing 4de8 and 2de7 and, on top of that, their first 7de7 ever.

Their two guest teams had every reason to be happy, they as well. Castellers de Barcelona completed 2de8f, 3de8, 4de8 and, in the round of pillars, their first pde6 since 2009. Moixiganguers d’Igualada repeated the results of their most successful exhibition 2011; they completed 4de8, 3de7s and 5de7, but this time away from home and, on top of that, all on the first attempt.
