Revellers take part in the traditional Els Enfarinats (The Floured) festival in the town of Ibi, Alicante province, Spain.

Part of the 200-year-old annual Day of the Innocents festiva, Els enfarinats in Valencian means 'breading'. The Els Enfarinats dress in military dress and stage a mock coup using flour and eggs.
