PEORIA, Ill (HOI) -- -

As Christians honor this Good Friday some locals in Peoria are marking the day with live performances. 

Winding their way through the streets of downtown Peoria.

It's a tradition in the Catholic Church involving 14-stations.

Each stop represents what Jesus went through to get to Calvary to be crucified. 

On Friday, members of the Hispanic community joined this re-enactment.

"Our Hispanic community all sorts of characters take place to enact what happened to Jesus along the way. Including the small children, the teenagers and the adults that depict the varies characters that took part in the passion of Jesus Christ," said Father Tom Gibson of The Cathedral of St. Mary.

There were about 35 re-enactors in the way of the cross. 

And over 50 people came to witness the somber commemoration.
