Time Out says

La Taronjada (loosely, The Orange Festival) consists of an innocent 'battle' between the Carnival players and the public of orange balloons and confetti, recalling the actual oranges that were once thrown. Even though it's one of the oldest traditions of Barcelona's Carnival celebrations, La Taronjada has established itself in recent years as one of the central events of the festival in the city, turning the Ribera district into the epicentre of the Carnival festival. It consists of four parts: the first soirée (4.30pm, Plaça Comercial); the Parade of the Reina Belluga (5.15pm, starting at the Mercat de Santa Caterina and finishing in Plaça Comercial); the Battle of La Taronjada (6.15pm, Plaça Comercial); and the Carnival La Taronjada Soirée: Masquerade Dance (6.30pm, Plaça Comercial).
