At noon on Easter Sunday, there is a Tamborrada (Drum parade) in the centre of Madrid: Plaza Mayor and surrounding area.

Since 2.005, it's organized by the Cofradía de la Entrada de Jesús en Jerusalén, from Zaragoza. It's composed by more than 110 members using their "timbales, bombos, tambores and carracas" (percussion instruments).

Regarding the website, look for Semana Santa (Spanish version) or Easter (English version).
