Portobelo, Panama — Pilgrims dressed in attire similar to that of the Black Christ of Portobelo attend the festivities marking the three century old celebration, on Panama's Caribbean Coast Sunday. Thousands of faithful join in the procession of the life-size statue of the Black Christ as it is taken from its place at the altar of the San Felipe Catholic church, and paraded through the town in a carnival like celebration before returning the statue to the church at midnight.
