Join us in the nightly processions of Las Posadas. We gather each night for a procession, re-enacting the search of Mary and Joseph for a lodging or "posada" in Bethlehem. At the end of the nightly procession, we reached the designated "posada" for an evening of celebration. The next night, the procession begins at the location where the last procession ended, through the 7 nights of Las Posadas until we reach the final destination. Each evening, neighbors will offer traditional Mexican and Central American snacks typical of the holidays. Music and dance will accompany us in each procession, courtesy of Aztec Dancers, Senderos, Banda de SalvadoreƱos, Irish Times & Grupo Folklorico de Santa Cruz. Free parking at Leibrandt & Beach St for the posadas in Beach Flats Friday and Saturday, 12/21 and 12/22!
