By The Star Staff


After a successful and multitudinous Christmas lighting, Caguas Mayor William Miranda Torres announced on Wednesday the lineup of cultural activities that will be held in the Criollo City during Christmas. The events announced include municipal activities, as well as shows in specialized halls.


“Puerto Rican Christmas is one full of a lot of cultural and family activity and good times” the mayor said. “That is why the cultural offer in Caguas will be extended until January and includes presentations of productions and activities organized by our Municipal Administration.”



The schedule of activities announced is as follows:


• Starting Saturday, Dec. 9, at the Centro de Bellas Artes de Caguas, “The Divorce of Laughter” will be presented with Francis Rosa and Danilo Beauchamp.


• Saturday, Dec. 16 at C3TEC the Green Christmas event will take place at 12 noon.-5 p.m.


• Saturday, Dec. 16 at the Centro de Bellas Artes de Caguas, the play “Adolescentes del Molusco” will start at 8:30 p.m.


• Saturday, Dec. 16 and Sunday, Dec. 17 at the Café Teatro Moneró “Por poco me jodo,” a show by Puerto Rican artist Junior Álvarez. The times of this presentation will be Saturday at 8:30 p.m. and Sunday at 6 p.m.


• On Dec. 21, 22, 23, 25, 28, 29, 30, and Jan. 1, 4, 5, 6 and 7, 2024, the Christmas Garden will be held at the Botanical Garden, an evening event for the whole family from 7 p.m.-11 p.m.


• On Thursday, Jan. 4, 2024 at the Dulce Nombre de Jesús Cathedral will see Our Promise to the Three Holy Kings starting at 6 p.m., and on Friday, Jan. 5, 2024 the Great Three Kings Party at Santiago R. Palmer Plaza starting at 9 a.m.



“Our goal is to continue to support the merchants of our urban center and that it continues to be an area of movement and varied activities for the whole family during the day and night,” Miranda Torres said. “By helping our merchants, we improve the quality of life of our people.”


The mayor added that, as part of the Criollo Festivities, a contest is being held to decorate the facades of houses.


“Home decorations are part of the activities that Puerto Ricans enjoy as a family during Christmas,” he said. ‘For this reason, we are holding a contest to reward the decorations of houses in our Criollo City. This guarantees us, during the evenings and weekends, a flow of people visiting the different neighborhoods and sectors, thus attracting visitors and helping to inject capital into the [small and midsize businesses] in our town. We need to be creative in the way we help our small merchants, and this is certainly one of those.”


Those interested have until Dec. 8 to send a photo of their residence to encendiendolasfiestas@caguas.gov.pr, with your name, neighborhood and phone number. A jury will evaluate them and choose five winners per neighborhood.
