The Las Posadas procession is a walking reenactment of the biblical story of Mary and Joseph's search for a birthplace for Jesus. Everyone is invited to join the candlelit procession, starting at 4:45 p.m., and sing traditional holiday songs in both Spanish and English as the players go from inn to inn, symbolically asking for lodging.

The procession culminates with a live nativity tableau in front of Casa de Estudillo along with a choir performance.
