Holy Week Procession A man and woman hold the guidepost on one of the floats. Men swing incense burners and fill the air with smoke. An incense burner flares up after new fuel is added. Incense is added to a burner. The float proceeds down one of the streets in Antigua. Young boys walk underneath the float, picking up flowers as they go along. The float leader controls the direction of the float by pushing on the beams he is holding. Elaborate carpets made of colored sawdust, grasses and flowers line the streets, over which the procession walks. Men carry a massive float topped by a statue of Jesus bearing the cross. The float can weigh several tons and take as many as 60 men to carry.
