Posada festival cuisine for purchase

A taste of Hispanic culture transformed A Hall on December 11th in celebration of Posada Parranda,  a Hispanic event,  a festival that celebrates Christmas. Morton West, Northeastern University, and the PTO are collaborating to develop next year’s event at Morton West. Posada Parranda  promotes parental involvement, provides fun activities, and the opportunity to meet new people. Some of the events that were happening include Loteria (Hispanic bingo), food (tamales, rice and beans, pozole), cookie decorating, Ojos de Dios (an arts and crafts project for children), Repujados, and arts and games. Music was heard and performed from 5:30 to 7:30 by Morton West students at the main entrance outside the auditorium. If you were a freshmen attending this event, and you are in a Spanish or English class,  you were able to get a book called, “Like Water for Chocolate”. The Posada Parranda was a free event which lasted from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and will become an annual event for Morton West. Morton East is also having a celebration this year as well and will feature some of the same activities.
