Looking for a way to celebrate the traditions of the holiday season with an ethnic flair? If so, then drop by Heritage Park (1581 N. Chaparral St.) Friday, December 8th.
Corpus Christi's Museum of Hispanic Culture (Instituto de Cultura Hispanica de Corpus Christi) will be hosting Festival Navideño from 5:00 to 9:00 PM. The event is free and open to everyone.
Join Mayor Joe McComb for the lighting of the tree, then learn about the Christmas traditions that come to us from various Hispanic cultures, including the Presentation of Gift Baskets.
Santa will be available for pictures, and children will have the chance to create their own arts and crafts, as well as meet a super hero, Padre Island Captain America.
The event will also provide a great opportunity for those who are looking to do some Christmas shopping, as many local vendors will be on hand. The Gulf Coast Humane Society will even be set up to help guide those who may be thinking of adopting a pet soon.
Of course, lots of local entertainment will be provided and there will be plenty of food available, as well.
Festival Navideño will have Christmas lights, a Christmas piñata and other surprises. The Museum of Hispanic Culture will also be open for tours.
