• Short Summary

    Religious procession in the Belgian city of Bruges.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Bruges. 'The Procession of the Holy Blood'. 200,000 people flock to 'The City of Bridges' to see centuries old religious procession."

    Bruges, Belgium.

    Religious procession through streets of Bruges. The people taking part are wearing old fashioned costumes. Cut away to show important looking priest. People in the procession (possibly dressed as if in the Holy Land) wave palm fronds. They are singing hymns.

    A religious symbol is carried in the procession - it is surrounded by Belgian clergymen.

    N.B. Presumably this has some connection with Easter.
