Members of downtown churches gather for a joint Palm Sunday worship service at Ninth Street and Broadway.
Any leftover fronds from Palm Sunday processions are burned and the ashes used in the subsequent year’s Ash Wednesday services. In countries without palm trees, branches of different trees are often used.
