La Posada is the Hispanic version of the procession and the story of Mary, Joseph and the birth of Jesus as told through the “Hymnos de las Posadas.” The program will include traditional Hispanic holiday music and dance featuring local entertainers. Sample traditional ethnic holiday treats. Of course, no program would be complete without the bursting of piñatas by children from the audience.
