The procession of El Gran Poder - Bolivia

El Gran Poder is celebrated in late May or early June and is officially called La Festividad de Nuestro Señor Jesús del Gran Poder. What once started as a simple candle procession in one of La Paz’s neighborhoods, Gran Poder, has grown into La Paz’s largest religious festival with a daylong procession in which more than 25,000 locals participate in folkloric dances and music.
