Parade in Bigastro

1511986_1050196021661567_7648091553739534597_oPam and I  go to either Torrevieja or Orihuela to watch the Good Friday parades during Holy Week.

This parade is on Friday 27th, Viernes de Dolores (Friday of sorrows) which precedes Palm Sunday, the week before the general parades take place.

On Easter Sunday I will be up at the crack of dawn again to record “the Encuentro”, Bigastro’s depiction of the moment when Mary discovers that her son, Jesus has risen from the dead. This time though I will make a point of recording the showering of petals from the apartment of our Spanish teacher Antonio and his wife. In my haste to get to the town square, I missed that last year in the video I made for the church.
