SPECIAL EVENT | La Trulla Navideña


The Rochester Puerto Rican Festival will celebrate the New Year and Three Kings Day with its annual Trulla Navideña event, which will take place on Saturday, January 9, 7 p.m., at Ray Ray's Bar & Grill (2260 Clifford Avenue). Puerto Rican Christmas-season customs include "parrandas or trullas navideñas," which are when a small group of friends gathers to surprise another friend. Think of it as sort of the Puerto Rican version of Christmas caroling. Most parranderos play an instrument — guitarras, tamboriles, güiro maracas, or palitos — and everyone sings.

Live music will be provided by Carrion Y Los Parranderos. The event is free to attend and open to ages 21 and over. For more information, visit
