The Start of Semana Santa - Tamborada Infantil

Spain appears to love religious festivals and parades, and the celebration of Semana Santa, the Holy Week preceding Easter, are huge events in almost every community.

I'm going to do some research because I really don't know anything about this, but I did witness one of the very first parades yesterday from my hotel window.

The children were so tiny, and they were surrounded by adults guiding them and taking their photos - very cute! According to Sue Walker of Jumilla Journal who took photos of a similar parade in Jumilla, this is the Tamborada Infantil.

Check out the little guy whose eyes are covered by his hat!
