La Noche de los Tambores. Mula In Easter, the night from Tuesday to Wednesday, one of the most popular traditions in the Region of Murcia is held in the Town Hall Square of Mula. Ever since the first bell stroke at midnight until noon the following the day, hundreds of Mula locals dressed in their typical black robes beat their drums ceaselessly.
 
Although the origin of this celebration is a mystery, it is known that it started becaming popular in the mid-19th century. However, in some periods the festivity was not allowed. In fact, the town hall did not allow people to celebrate this ritual, which caused street riots and a few arrests many years ago. In 1944, the town hall created a tax that drum players needed to pay in order to take on to the streets this day. In 1987, the Drummer Association of Mula was created, contributing to promote this festivity which in 1990 was declared event of Regional Tourist Interest by the Murcian Government.
