Virgen del Carmen

17 Jul

Last night at nearly 10 o’clock we heard a hubbub in the street and impulsively decided to rush out of the house to see the parade in honor on the Virgen del Carmen.  The statue of the virgin is taken out once a year and marched through the streets, her procession complete with music, church bells, and dancing.

We recorded a few little videos–one, two, and three.

I am so glad I had the chance to witness the traditional festivities.
