36th Annual Las Posadas Nativity Procession

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 1983 the people of Columbia have put on their own version of Las Posadas each December - with a distinctive 1850s flavor. Characters in this re-enactment include Mary and Joseph and their donkey, three Wise Men, tax collector, innkeeper, miners, musicians and other costumed townspeople. Columbia's Main Street is decorated for the Christmas season, and luminaries light the way for the procession, while onlookers hold candles and join in singing Christmas Carols.
