Señor del Huerto

April 4th, 2007

The image of the Señor de Huerto symbolizes the speech of Jesus en the garden of Gethsemane(Getsemani), where he was arrested by Roman soldiers after Judas turned him in. It symbolizes accepting the plans of God.

Before the procession, student groups from universities, clubs and other organizations filled the streets that the procession would take place on with drawings created by using flowers and plants. Each drawing symbolizes something to do with the coming procession.
The streets in and around the plaza soon filled with thousands of people, and the procession began with a tremendous explosion from a single firework. We were in the plaza and waited for the image of Jesus to arrive; when it did I managed to get some good photos. Click photos below to see them.
