Santa Ana Children’s Procession In Antigua Guatemala

children's procession antigua guatemala

There were two children’s procession in Antigua today. Unfortunately, I could only make it to one. A children’s procession is always a crowd favorite – almost everything is done on a miniature scale, by children, from the music to anda bearers.

Children’s processions are a relatively recent development, spiking in popularity in the latter half of last century. It’s a way for parents to instill their traditions into their children from an early age.

And now, I leave you with the pictures of tiny Santa Ana’s procession, with its tiny anda, tiny anda bearers, and tiny roman soldiers.
