Learn about Latin quinceanera traditions
A girl’s 15th birthday in some Latin societies is celebrated as a coming of age milestone, with roots deep in tradition and symbolism.
The public is invited to learn more about quinceañera traditions during “La Quinceañera: Share the Experience” from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 8, at Mesa County Libraries’ Central Library, 530 Grand Ave.
The program will share the history, tradition and symbolism of a quinceañera along with a display of items used in the celebration, food samples and a traditional cake.
Music will be performed and young women in their quinceañera dresses will be available for questions.
Call 243-4442 for more information.
