Under a blue sky and a warm sun, hundreds of bigastrense gathered in the park for the blessing of the palms yesterday morning. The procession from the church arrived on time and the parish priest gave his blessing. From there they left to return to the church taking a tour around the town. Once back at the church, there was holy mass.
As I said the other day, many of the townsfolk were out in their Sunday best ready to be seen. As you might expect though, it was the beautifully dressed children who stole the show and drew the greatest attention. Spanish people do dress their children well for these sort of occasions and spend a lot of money on the clothes they wear.
