Colacho jumps in Castrillo de Murcia

epa02797199 A man dressed as the 'Colacho', a traditional figure that represents the devil, jumps over a group of babies while holding a horse tail in Castrillo de Murcia, Spain, during the traditional Colacho celebrations on 26 June 2011. The tradition dates back to the 17th century and features the Colacho figure, representing the evil, who runs around the village hitting people with a horse tail while villagers insult him. At the end of the day, evil is defeated and the Colacho runs away jumping over babies born in the last year, releasing them from evil. EPA/SANTI OTERO | Location: CASTRILLO DE MURCIA, Spain.
