Experience a holiday tradition with Ballet Folklorico Costa de Oro as they present their 4th annual "Fiestas Navidenas." This spectacular holiday event is a special south-of-the-border celebration laden with seasonal accents, including a traditional Christmas processional (posada), Mexican holiday songs (villancicos), a visit from the Three Wise Men, a festive pinata scene, and a vibrant finale performed in the spirit of a true holiday fiesta.
At "Fiestas Navidenas" attendees can visit El Pueblito de Navidad for traditional holiday foods, drinks, and arts, enjoy holiday displays, and win holiday raffle prizes.
Based in San Lorenzo, Ballet Folklorico Costa de Oro has been performing in the Bay Area since 2006 and opened their own dance school in July 2009. Its mission is to preserve Mexican culture and traditions, educating the community of their rich heritage through dance and music.
With "Fiestas Navidenas" a company of over 65 dancers will present a unique and colorful experience for the whole family at California State University East Bay's campus theatre.
Shows will be offered at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, December 8.
