'PAMELTJE OMMEGANG' = last procession of the year
Pamel, comes from the Latin ' Pabulum' which means ' meadow'
Originally around the church there was only pasture and arable land. On the last day of the octave (secund monday) there's a mass at 6.30 a.m. at St John's. After, the faitful people collects to do the procession.(last procession of the year)
Earlier the procession was only in the vicinity of the chruch (Pamel), but nowadays it follows the official route. The statue was formerly carried by young women but since 2004 it must be transported on a cart.
