Perpetuating The Holy Week Traditions in Antigua Guatemala No. 2

Rudy Giron: AntiguaDailyPhoto.com &emdash; Perpetuating The Holy Week Traditions in Antigua Guatemala 2

As I mentioned yesterday, there will be Lent and Holy Week celebrations in Antigua Guatemala for a long while. These religious traditions are being passed on to the very young. Here we see young cucuruchos, bearers, as they carried the small float from the Cathedral. I recorded a small video clip with the iPhone to give you an idea of the sounds and feel of the small processions.

If you had the opportunity, would you wear a robe and carry one of the floats?
