Las Octavitas: Come Celebrate the End of the Puerto Rican Christmas Season

Tomorrow, Wednesday, January 11th, Melissa, Comptroller John Liu, Congressman Rangel, and several other elected officials will be celebrating Las Octavitas (or eight day after the epiphany) with the El Barrio/East Harlem community. In Puerto Rican culture, this is the final day of the Christmas season.

The event is not a religious ceremony. It is a celebration of Puerto Rican cultural heritage. We hope you can join us.
