Las Posadas event at La Purisima Mission in Lompoc canceled due to air quality concerns

Posted: Updated:

An event planned for this weekend at the La Purisima Mission in Lompoc has been canceled due to air quality concerns stemming from the Thomas Fire. 

Las Posadas is a holiday event that "re-enacts the journey of Mary and Joseph as they travel from inn to inn on their way to Bethlehem."

Prior to the cancellation, costumed docents were scheduled to guide people through the mission Saturday afternoon in a tradition that dates back more than 400 years in Mexico. 

Docents say the decision was made to cancel the December 16 event so that children and others were not exposed to smoke.

For many days, Lompoc has been in the "unhealthy" zone for air quality, which prompted the Lompoc Unified School District to cancel classes for the week. 

By Friday morning, Lompoc's air quality was listed as "good."
