HOLIDAY | Trulla Navideña


EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to the weather, this event has been cancelled.

The Rochester Puerto Rican Festival on Saturday, January 6, will host its annual Trulla Navideña party in celebration of the New Year and Three Kings Day. Trulla Navideña, which has roots in Puerto Rico and other Latin American countries, is a tradition of seasonal cheer in which a group of revelers gather on the doorsteps of friends to play instruments and sing folk Christmas songs, parranda style (with acoustic guitars, drums, scrapers, shakers, and turtle shell percussion). The musicians are invited in for refreshments, and the party will often move on to the next home, continuing through the night.

The PR Fest's celebration takes place at Ray Ray's Bar and Grill, 2260 Clifford Avenue. The group Carrion y sus Parranderos will perform. 7 p.m. Free admission. Ages 21 and up. 234-7660;
