Dozens of devil-like figures dance and convulse at the sound of cowbells, chasing onlookers with pitchforks in Alsasua as part of this Spanish town's Carnival.In the nearby village of Lesaka, residents dress up as the traditional Carnival characters "Zaku Zaharrak," meaning "old sack" in the local Basque language. After sunset, covering their faces with white handkerchiefs, stuffed into sacks full of straw, and holding a stick with an inflated animal's bladder used to hit people, the Zaku Zaharrak characters parade for hours through the village dancing and singing while a band plays music.
