Participants wearing traditional Bavarian folk costumes visit the local cemetery under drizzling rain after attending the annual Corpus Christi ('Fronleichnam' in German) mass at St. Michael's Church in Seehausen am Staffelsee, Germany, on May 30, 2013. The Seehausen Corpus Christi celebration usually includes a procession to a chapel across the nearby Staffelsee lake, though rain forced organizers to cancel the lake procession this year.
