| Join Las Posadas (posada means lodging, shelter or inn) the second Friday in December, a traditional cultural celebration that depicts Mary and Joseph's difficult journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of shelter. A candle-lit procession though Heritage Park will be led by a Christmas angel along with a live burro and two volunteers dressed as Joseph and Mary. |
"Pidiendo Posada", as well as cherished carols in English and Spanish will be sung throughout the night. As the last door is opened and shelter has been found, the celebration begins. Colorful performances by folklorico dancers and mariachis will take place on an outdoor stage.
Food may be purchased while waiting for the procession or in the park when the celebration begins.
To participate in the procession meet at Heritage Park Windmill at 6:30 p.m.
