About Procession of the holy blood

The Procession of the Holy Blood, that goes back to no less than 1303, happens in Bruges each year on Ascension Day. Althought there have been numerous progressions throughout the hundreds of years, the core of the occasion is the reenactment of the enthusiasm and restoration of Jesus Christ. For whatever length of time that anybody can recall, the show has been separated into four sections. Legend has it that in 1150, after the second Crusade, Thierry d'Alsace, Count of Flanders, brought the relic of the Holy Blood of Jesus again from Jerusalem, to be put in the Basicila on the Burg. The Procession of the Holy Blood was added to the delegate rundown of intagible social legacy of mankind.

Each spring, 30,000 to 45,000 onlookers accumulate in the core of the Belgian city of Bruges to watch the procession of the holy blood on Ascension Day, forty days after Easter. Driven by the thirty city notables of the brotherhood of the Holy Blood and joined by metal groups, in excess of 1,700 natives by walking, in trucks or on horseback perform stories from the old testament, the life of Jesus and the historical backdrop of Bruges.
