Good Friday in Chicago
If you are looking on how to celebrate Good Friday and you live in Chicago, head over to Pilsen for a re-enactment of Jesus as the Way of the Cross. It is very dramatic as thousand of the faithful take part in the annual Good Friday Procession. I started photographing it 12 years ago. I am happy to say I have given up trying to capture it on film and just enjoy being part of the crowd.
It usually begins at 9am in front of the church at 18th and Halsted. There is a service in a neighborhood church after the procession. Following that it is always a treat to stop at a local eatery for a hot cup of champurrado, a delicious drink of masa, milk, water, mexican chocolate and piloncillo.
