Thousands lined the streets of downtown San Antonio for the annual Good Friday "Passion Drama." The re-enactment began in Milam Park where actors portraying Pontius Pilate and Herod decided Jesus' fate. Other elaborately dressed performers played the angry crowd and fierce soldiers who follow Jesus as he carries the cross from the park to San Fernando Cathedral where he is 'crucified' upon the cross. Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller presided over the re-enactment, and pitched in to carry the cross along the route.
