The town celebrates these days in a special way, following a bequest from parents to children which has been strengthening more and more over the years. Thus, a large number of locals are involved in the religious processions of the Holy Week, where they get dressed with the robes of their respective guilds and take the images of their saints, with a fervent feeling of deep respect to those religious traditions kept for centuries.
After the Holy week, the former devotional atmosphere becomes a celebration and Onda’s people get ready for the traditional festivals. Rockets are fired with joy and friends and family meet to have the typical mona de Pascua (popular Easter cake).
During this week takes place the Pascua Taurina, a series of events offering many and varied bullfighting shows within the Multiusos premises. The exhibition site consists in half the bullring and the platforms of the bullfighting clubs enclosing an oval shape. It holds livestock contests, running of bulls and bullfighting contests and challenges.
Also numerous cultural and children’s activities are conducted in the Castle and the Natural Reserve of El Salvador.
