Our Annual!

A Community Event from the Townfolk of Columbia, California.

Candle Holders by Kim Kyhl - 2000


starts at 5ish or so

Las Posadas is a Spanish tradition that re-enacts the biblical story of Mary and Joseph's search for shelter in Bethlehem on Christmas Eve. Since about 1982 the people of Columbia have put on their own version of Las Posadas each December--with a distinctive 1850's flavor. Other characters in this re-enactment are there too: the three wise men, tax collector and innkeeper, and miners and musicians and other costumed townspeople. Columbia's Main Street is decorated for the Christmas season, and luminaria will light the way for the procession, while on-lookers hold candles and join in singing Christmas carols.
