Easter Sunday Procession in Cabanyal
Bright, warm, sunny weather? IT’S AN EASTER SUNDAY MIRACLE!!
Hooray! After Friday’s procession was canceled due to the inclement weather, it was wonderful to have a beautiful Easter Sunday. At 1 in the afternoon, the most colorful and upbeat of Valencia’s Semana Santa Marinera events got underway.
A large crowd was on hand to watch and cheer over thirty brotherhoods, who had their hoods off and marched along to fun pasodobles while handing out flowers. Apparently the way to get a flower is to (a) scream “Guapa!” at the marcher of your choosing and (b) be a woman.
This was a very long parade, but everyone seemed content to have an excuse to stay outside and soak up the sun. Hope all our readers had a great Easter weekend!
