Nuestro Señor de la Columna arrives in San Miguel de Allende
The fireworks that awoke us at 5 o’clock on the morning of Sunday March 21, 2010 signaled another arrival of Nuestro Señor de la Columna.
This year, instead of ignoring the fireworks, we decided to get up and head to Avenida Independencia to welcome the three images as they arrived from their night-long journey.
We made it to the avenue at 7 AM just in time to see the chamomile flowers and sawdust carpets that covered the road for several blocks.
A few minutes later, the three images could be seen arriving in the distance.
The avenue filled with thousands of people as they followed the images to the San Juan de Dios Church.
