Explanation:
Dear Ailish,

hope this helps, though you can use another term which you prefer. A trabucada is, simply, a long serie of shooting (of course, peaceful ones :) which wakes up the whole village and tells you that the feast is opening.

Yes, but I don't think this can be translated, maybe I'll put 'cannonade' in brackets.
