The Pharaohs’ Golden Parade took place in Cairo, Egypt, on April 3. It celebrated the country’s history, transporting 22 royal mummies from the Egyptian Museum to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization. The mummies of 18 kings and four queens were carried in custom-made vehicles. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime event. These are our ancestors,” Sarah Zaher, a parade attendee, told the New York Times.
