Dia de San Pedro - Boat Procession

Dia de San Pedro is a grand tradition that honors our Patron Saint, St. Peter who was a fisherman. Every year, at the crack of dawn, boats line up and a procession ensues through the waters of San Pedro. Starting from the Caribbean Sea, the boats all make their way to the lagoon where the father blesses the boats and the fishermen.

The boats lined up and the procession began.

One by one they went and through the course of the procession more joined the religious tradition.
