My guess is that there'll be things happening--- her best bet is to make enquiry of the hospitalerx or her innkeeper. If she leaves early on Good Friday, she will likely miss out on any parades that afternoon.

There is a procession at 9 am, also one in the evening but your friend may have started walking by then...
Also apparently the bars serve a special 'limonada'...
Here's the itinerary of the procession:
  • 9:00 horas. Procesión del encuentro con salida desde San Andrés, avenida del castillo, glorieta el Cruceiro, avenida del Castillo, calle Obispo Osmundo, calle Ancha, plaza del Ayuntamiento, calle del Reloj, plaza de La Encina, calle Gil y Carrasco, avenida del Castillo, iglesia de San Andrés.

There is a curious and old tradition in Castilla León and therefore Ponferrada. Only at Easter, people go mainly to some hotels to bet money in a game called "chapas". In Franco times when betting money was absolutely forbidden. Chapas was allowed at Easter only in León.

OMG this is soooooo exciting. I'm arriving in Santiago on 20 March 2016 at about 8.30 pm and after I've slept, will go to the masses and to the Pilgrims' Office and talk to my friends for suggestions which Camino to walk, just so I can be back in Santiago for the Easter service. BUT... there's going to be sooooo much to participate in. I'm soooo excited. Buen Camino, my friends :). You will be in my thoughts and prayers :)_ Caesar
