Procession of the Holy Blood, Brugge, Belgium

As I said in my last post we were in Brugge on Ascension which mean the Procession of the Holy Blood. It is a big parade that we didn't even know was happening until the place we stayed told us about it. It is always nice to find surprise fun events when traveling! The highlight is a cloth with the blood of Jesus Christ on and the procession includes historical and biblical stories.
Waiting for the procession to start. We wandered downtown early and purchased seats (only a few Euros each!) and so we could show up just before it should start and still have a great view of the festivities. It was really nice to be able to sit right on the edge of the road and watch everything. We also had a great spot were people stopped and performed their stories so we were pretty happy (even though it was really hot in the sun!)



The police come through first and make sure the way is clear. Coming up is just a ton of parade photos. If you don't like parade photos then this isn't the post …
