Spain The Civic procession of el Vitor

A villager dressed up in old clothes and with his head covered takes part in The Civic procession of el Vitor in the town of Mayorga in Valladolid, Spain, Monday, Sept. 28, 2015. Villagers from a small village in the northern Spain burn leather wineskins that are hung from poles and between the songs of worshipers, the cloud of smoke, the fire and the smell of burnt fish pays homage to Santo Toribio, a missionary native to the village of Mayorga who was canonised in the 18th century. These acts of devotion are held in memory of the day that the villagers received the remains of the saint, in whose name the people went into the streets with flaming torches and lanterns.
