This weekend more than 230 actors will re-create Jesus' final hours with a 30-minute, outdoor walk-through event at Spokane Valley Adventist Church.

The annual exhibit opens to the public on Friday and will continue through Easter Sunday. Pastor Byron Corbett said he expects more than 4,000 people to attend, which is about how many people came last year.

Viewing hours are Friday, 6-9 p.m., Saturday, 4-9 p.m. and Sunday 4-9 p.m. Tours begin every 15 minutes. The event is free, but the church asks people to make reservations here.
