Blowing Up the Judases

Sunday, April 9, 12pm

The full tortured passion and drama of Mexico’s Roman Catholic heritage is unleashed when this historic colonial town in central Guanajuato province commemorates Christ’s crucifixion. On Good Friday, following a mock trial, real-life Christ imitators drag crosses around the town, followed by a mourning Mary Magdalene and the disciples and prodded by Roman centurions. Grande finale is the Firing of the Judases on Easter Sunday when huge papier mache figures of politicians, bogeymen and Judas Iscariot are blown up in the town’s public gardens.
