Guatemala: Semana Santa in Antigua – Day 3

On Friday the celebrations begin at 3 am with Roman soldiers riding around town in search on Jesus and then at 4 am a procession in purple robes carries Christ dragging the cross float. At 3pm, the crusifiction is reenacted at two main cathedral and another two processions are launched, now all in black robes. There also was a whole series of floats re-inacting pretty much step by step what happened.
