Good Friday procession is tonight: Jesus, statues, more

The City Paper reminds me that tonight is the Good Friday procession in the neighborhood. It's a traditional Catholic celebration with lots of pageantry: people dressed up in AD 1 style, priests in traditional garb, statues, and more.

It starts at 8:30 pm at the Sacred Heart Church at 16th and Park and goes through Columbia Heights and Mt. Pleasant.The City Paper has a handy map for the procession, which goes down Park, 14th, Irving and Mt. Pleasant.

The City Paper has some photos from last year, and below are a bunch of a the 2007 procession in Columbia Heights:
