Timket Crowd

The star of Timket is the main ceremony, but another show during Epiphany is also worth checking out: the crowd. People come, and in large numbers. They also treat the celebration as a chance to dress up and be seen.

People everywhere, impressively scattered up the hill.

Can't get up the hill for a good view? If you're a tourist who arrived by bus, head to the roof. Locals, find a mound.

A beautiful sea of watchers wearing white.

The women are out in their traditional best, sporting fancy umbrellas and paper hats.

Time for an "I was at Timket!" photo-op.
