The Santa Cruz Confraternity, as the name implies, is responsible for many of the arrangements for the crucifixion of Christ. They arrive from their other duties, attending upon the Mam in his chapel on the plaza, to the sound of the noisemaker. They show reverence to the crucified figure whose loincloth is carefully decorated with coloured foil — just like the fruit.
