The community is invited to join costumed docents as they lead the Las Posadas procession through the mission grounds with songs in Spanish and English this Sunday, Dec. 18 from 2 to 3 p.m.
This free event at the La Purisima Mission State Historic Park is open to the public and everyone is welcome to enjoy refreshments afterward in La Sala. Attendees are encouraged to celebrate in festive attire.
This tradition dates back over 400 years in Mexico and reenacts the biblical journey of Mary and Joseph seeking shelter in Bethlehem.
