I don't know what the name for these are, but they are made of candle wax. During the procession, they are taken from the Mausoleum of one of Sale's founders and carried around the Medina.
The hat like things carried by these men are usually used to hold the bride's gifts.
One of the many bands! Everyone on the crowded street was taking pictures, clapping, and dancing along with them, which made the parade really fun!
This band is Gnawa style--ancient African Islamic songs. They're always playing on the street here!
These children are carrying Qu'ranic verses on their tablets.
Despite the dreary weather, the energy of the mussim amazed me. I am so grateful for my friend and her family, for their hospitality and explanations while guiding us through the Medina and welcoming us into their home! I am now enjoying a two day break from school as part of the holiday! Eid Mubarak :)
