This Foursquare check-in from Brian Wong on Friday night certainly got my attention:
Jesus is being crucified on bernal hill (@ Bernal Heights Park)
Brian’s photo, shown above, was a real eye-catcher as well.
Meanwhile, according to reader Roger, the reenactment took place the corner of Folsom and Ripley, on the north side of the park.
It was pretty epic. According to my neighbor (40 years on corner of Folsom/Ripley) it has been going on for years but typically happens in the early afternoon. After doing some digging, I discovered it was not St. Anthony’s but another church from down on the flats.
Apart from being rather graphic, he reports that it was also unquiet, with loudspeakers carrying chants of Latin and Spanish prayers. Very intense.
