Live Via Crucis is an annual cultural and spiritual tradition in Cavite City. Via Crucis or “Station of the Cross” is a passion play done during the Holy Week in which participants (a group of local residents of Cavite City) wore biblical costumes and took center stage of the town plaza to dramatize the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It showcases different acts stated in the written Fourteen Stations of the Cross where one station usually last for 20 to 30 minutes.
This annual event has been celebrated since 1974 and this year marks its 41st anniversary. They almost got the same casts from last year Via Crucis but with some minor changes with the apostles and ladies of Jerusalem.
