Stations of the Cross on the Ellijay Square

One wonderful Easter tradition in Ellijay is the live reenactment of the Stations of the Cross. Every year the Good Samaritan Catholic Church takes over the town square for this powerful performance. This year, look for them on Friday, April 18, 2014 at around 3:00 p.m. It is worth making a trip to see.

Here are some pictures from the event in previous years.
