Lenten preparations

Lent has arrived, which is a very busy time in Antigua with many vigils and processions throughout town each weekend leading up to Semana Santa (Holy Week)  The floats that are carried in the many processions are stored in one area of town that I've never seen open.  Last weekend, I walked by and it was open and men were painting and repairing the floats in preparation for the many processions.


The row of floats

An interesting scene is set to the side

Very intense concentration

I remember seeing this float last year and wondering what it meant.  I still don't know.
