Good Friday Procession in Baliuag (Part 1 of 3)

I’m not a devote Catholic but what I love about the Holy Week is visiting 7 churches aka Visita Iglesia and endless procession depicting the events of the Crucifixion. One of the most detailed and the longest procession I’ve attended was the Good Friday Procession in Baliuag, Bulacan.


More than 100 karo (carroza) take part in this annual procession which happens every Holy Wednesday and Good Friday. I’ve seen it a couple of times since I lived in Baliuag during my boyhood years but it’s only last year that I was able to take pictures of the karo. Most of these karo have lifesize statues and almost all events in the life of Christ is depicted.

This is definitely THE procession that all Filipino Catholics should see at least once in their life.
