POSTPONED TO JANUARY // Beach Flats Neighborhood Cleanup
December 15, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
CWC will be working with Beach Flats Neighbors to organize a cleanup in January. Stay tuned!
Turn up the holiday cheer and take action for the Beach Flats neighborhood during the Neighborhood Cleanup on December 15. This cleanup is a fun community gathering leading up to the celebration of the 400-year old holiday tradition of Las Posadas.
Las Posadas is celebrated in Latin American countries from Dec 16 – Dec 24. During Las Posadas, people of all ages and backgrounds gather and reenact Mary and Joseph’s search for a safe haven. As a group, people walk from house to house in their neighborhood until they find their final inn or lodging, referred to as a posada. At this posada, hosts welcome the group inside and provide food, drink and music.
The first day of Las Posadas is on December 16. During the neighborhood cleanup, we will clean up trash, litter and leaves off the sidewalk and street so the path of those celebrating posadas is clean and inviting. This is great for holiday celebration and good for the health of our beloved San Lorenzo River.
This event will start at Poet’s Park located 200 Raymond Street at 1 PM. Volunteers will grab a bucket, gloves and a trash grabber and walk different streets in Beach Flats and along the Riverwalk picking up trash. Following the cleanup, participants will celebrate the neighborhood, the holiday and their work with food, music and games.
