A bridge filled with prayers

People cross an arch bridge to pray for harmony, harvest and health during a folk gala in Anxian county, Southwest China’s Sichuan province, March 24, 2011. A total of 100,000 locals and people from other regions of Sichuan take part in the ritual, named Caiqiao - or bridge stepping - which has lasted for more than 200 years. People also beat drums and watch a traditional dragon dance during the blessing. [Photo/CFP]
