A type of clown who keeps order
The Zangarron wears a mask of black leather, clothing colors, three cowbells and two bigger cowbells to the back and a stick from which hang three swollen bladders. He must pursue children and elderly. The bladders represent fertility and cowbells are bound to scare the spirits.
The Zangarron is accompanied in procession by the teenagers reaching the legal age this year, ranging in two rows and covered with black cloaks. Zangarron Mission is to protect young people so they can dance.
