Ferrying St.Peter to our shores!
Today I'm posting more than one photo so I can show you a part of our feast celebrations which I think is a bit unusual.
It has become a habit by both clubs to bring in the statue of St.Peter by boat to the shore and some boat owners follow the main boat as sort of a parade, waving flags,ballons and sounding horns. This particular club (we'll call it the red club) even had a band on a barge to accompany them.
The last two photos are of the statue being lifted to shore and the procession afterwards.
I must admit that I'm neither a follower of the red club nor of the green one but I go to both of their functions depending on when it's practical for me to go, so yesterday we were part of this boat parade on our boat.
I'll be posting fireworks photos tomorrow, as the display is tonight.
