Las Posadas at Old Mission San Jose
(2608 reads)
Friday, Dec 14 to Sunday, Dec 23 Come sing carols and celebrate Christmas - Since 1982, Las Posadas, Mary and Joseph’s Journey to Bethlehem, has been a tradition in the Mission San Jose Neighborhood. This year our journey with Mary and Joseph begins at 6PM on the front porch of the Mission San Jose Museum, 43300 Mission Blvd.

We will sing Christmas carols and proceed to a local business within two blocks of the Mission. A family is selected to carry the beautiful hand-carved statue of Mary and Joseph. Once inside the host business, the Fremont Cultural Arts Council has arranged for a short musical program and we will then enjoy light refreshments courtesy of our host. Please wear warm clothing and bring a flashlight to read the music sheets as we proceed. We hope you will join us rain or shine for this no-cost celebration during the Christmas season!

Espada Court Victorian Christmas
(1604 reads)
Espada Court in Fremont, decorates their Victorian style homes the full month of December with thousands of lights and lighted figures for Christmas, collecting money and canned foods by having volunteers outside each evening, handing out candy canes and information about the charitable cause. In the past we have collected for Sister John Marie's Pantry and the Tri-City Children's coalition and made sizable donations thanks to the many people who drive and walk through our Court. We will continue this tradition as long as we have volunteers to help us collect through the month.

We need your help. Click the "Read more..." link below to learn how you can help.
