Default Moros y Cristianos in Alcoy

Thinking of visiting the Moros y Cristianos festival this week. Am I right in thinking that it is on this week?

If it is, which day is best to visit to see the main procession?

If it is, what is the best parking strategy in Alcoy and the best time to arrive?

Many thanks if anyone can answer this for me.
