About 45,000 spectators were gathering together on Thursday 25th of May in the heart of Bruges to watch the 2017 Procession of the Holy Blood on Ascension Day, forty days after Easter.   Perfect weather conditions this year for Bruges' nicest day of the year:  A blue sunny sky and 23°C.

 

The colourful procession dates back to the thirteenth century, when a citizen of Bruges is said to have brought the Relic of the Holy Blood of Jesus Christ back from the Second Crusade.

The procession was starting in the Wollestraat at approximately 14.30 hours.
