Ragtag Daily Prompt, Sound: November 19, 2019

To the roll of drums and the blaring of trumpets, the procession wound its way through the streets of the capital, from the palace courtyard to the steps of the great cathedral. After the musicians, came the mounted honor guards with their bright red jackets and silver helmets with long, white plumes. Next came the happy couple in an open carriage, while the rest of the nobility, on foot, brought up the rear.

The onlookers cheered until their throats were raw. Hooves clattered on the cobblestones. Bells from every corner of the city rang triumphantly. Such was the sound that villagers in the countryside could hear from miles away. It was a time for celebration. It was the wedding day of le comte des deux chats and their beloved sovereign Princess. It had been a generation, maybe more, since the people as a whole were united in such joy.

With the approximate surface area of my thumbnails, it releases the call of a bullhorn. Just imagine if it were the size of my thumb! Truly mind-boggling.
