It seems like even small towns in Spain know who to celebrate Easter big time, as footage filmed on Sunday in Villanueva de la Serena shows.

Every Easter Sunday morning, around 6,000 people gather in the Plaza de Espana, to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, in a parade where two statues of Virgin Mary and the Risen Christ are raced to meet each among the attendees.

'La carrerita', as this Spanish tradition is called, has been ongoing since the 18th century.
