61ST ANNUAL LAS POSADAS EVENT DRAWS HUNDREDS TO OLD TOWN Hundreds attended the Las Posadas procession in Old Town San Diego Historic State Park on Sunday, Dec. 11. The annual Las Posadas event is a candlelit procession that re-enacts the biblical story of Mary and Joseph’s search for a birthplace for the Christ child. This year was the 61st annual procession in Old Town but the tradition has been happening since 1546 in Mexico and is practiced around the world.
