Parade Of The Bando De La Huerta 2009

Yesterday, following the festival of spring, was the parade of "Murcia in the spring" or "war of the flowers". I could not take pictures of the parade, so I leave some pictures of the parade of the Bando de la Huerta.
This parade shows different habits and customs that had earlier in the orchards of Murcia and now very few people still maintain the tradition.
In the first picture you can see spinners making bobbin lace. In the second photo, making bread. It is very common in the orchards of Murcia, finding firewood kilns to make bread.

It's sad when traditional crafts are lost. I hope some young ones in Murcia decide to take them up.
