Las Posadas is a beloved holiday tradition that began in Mexico and has spread throughout locals in Latin America and the United States. Traditionally this fiesta is an opportunity to join with family, friends, and neighbors and celebrate the Nativity and Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem to find an inn, or posada. This holiday season you are invited to take your own journey to this special event. Reenact the Posada story with your family while you walk among the lights and pinatas, say “hello” to the animals after dark, listen to music, enjoy food vendors, create traditional luminarias and more!
Featured interactive activities at Las Posadas include:
• Traditional Las Posadas Navideñas walk
• Tractor rides around Farm Country with Christmas caroling
• Folkloric and cultural performances by the Bailando Con El Corazon dance group
