La Procesion de Santa Maria Magdalena -- 22 de Julio 2009

Hi Everyone, here is a link to a YouTube video I uploaded of the annual procession for the Patron Saint of Magdalena in the Beni Province. It is an annual event coinciding with a 3-day festival. I don't know much about the history, but I imagine it has been going on for hundreds of years. I found it to be an interesting cultural event, and a good party too!


In response from BoliviaBella.com: Hi Geddy! Hey thanks for sharing this great cultural video. Sometimes it's hard to explain to people how Bolivians mix their traditional indigenous cultures with the Catholic traditions and religion and this is a really good example of that. It also gives other site visitors the opportunity to see a little of beautiful Magdalena. We will also put a link to it from our festivals page and Beni tours page, as well. Thank you!
