Reported Events: Noche de Velitas, Dec. 7

Once the calendar turns to December, Christmas traditions take center stage. Voces Latinas, the Sofia Quintero Art and Cultural Center (SQACC), and Inspire Multi-Media Solutions are joining forces to present Noche de Velitas (Night of the Candles) on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019.

According to tradition in Colombia, loved ones and strangers alike gather to light candles, signifying their hopes, dreams, and wishes for the upcoming year. While the tradition began as a religious holiday, the event has evolved to become a Colombian cultural event that signifies love, family, and friendship. As Noche de Velitas celebrates the Immaculate Conception of Mary, a dinner and dance at SQACC, 1225 Broadway, that evening also will open the Christmas season.

Tickets are $40 in advance, $45 at the door. The Dec. 7 evening event will feature a Colombian Christmas dinner and entertainment from Sammy Deleon and his Salsa Band. There also will be a DJ and a cash bar.

The Northwest Ohio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (NOHCC) will co-host a holiday open house Tuesday, Dec. 10, 5:30 to 7 p.m., at the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority building, 720 Water St., near downtown Toledo. The open house is being co-hosted by Glass City Radio, which owns oldies and variety hits station WIMX-FM Mix 95.7 and hip-hop R and B station HOT 97.3 Light appetizers and beverages will be provided. Radio station tours will be conducted, along with a meet-and-greet of on-air staff.
