WARNGAU, Germany (AP) " Townspeople and farmers in Warngau, south of Munich, have donned traditional costumes for their annual procession in horse-drawn carriages to a local church in honor of St. Leonard, considered the patron saint of horses and livestock.
The "Leonhardi pilgrimage," which was revived in Warngau in 1983 after an 80-year break, takes place ever year on the fourth Sunday in October.
An open-air service is held on the meadow outside the All Saints' church, with priests blessing the participants. Similar processions are held in several other southern German towns.
