Once again the northern town of Icod de los Vinos stages one of its most popular celebrations: the Running of the Boards on St Andrew’s Night. Created to mark the annual opening of the new wines at local wineries, the event sees young people take to greased toboggan-like boards to launch themselves down the steep streets of various parts of the town. The sight of the most daring ones hurtling along Calle del Plano at top speed is truly spectacular.
