La Posada, an annual Pasadena event held in collaboration with the Lake Avenue Community Foundation and Lake Avenue Church, had more than 400 attendees this year.

Lake Avenue Community Foundation and Lake Avenue Church recently held La Posada, a traditional Catholic Christmas celebration.
“La Posada is a short processional reenacting Joseph and Mary’s search for a place to stay on the eve of the birth of our Savior, including carols and a dinner celebration,” said LACF Executive Director Nancy Stiles. “La Posada is also a way for families who participate in LACF programming to share a Christmas tradition that serves as a thank you to many of the volunteers who tutor and mentor students at Lake Avenue Community Foundation. It is a fabulous community-building event that gives us an opportunity to showcase several of our core values such as interdependence, mutuality and collaboration. It’s also a whole lot of fun to see our community celebrating and sharing a delicious meal together.”
LACF parents made a delicious dinner of pozole, tamales, champurrado and buñuelos, and the children enjoyed making cookies, crafts and breaking the pinata.
