A “chocolatada” is a social event in which chocolate, (in this case hot chocolate) becomes the reason for the meeting. It is usually a festive meeting with a commemorative or celebration character. In this case Luisito celebrates Three Kings’ Day and his favorite drink is hot chocolate.
Lusito is a character in Rafael A. Osuba’s book, “Lusito Celebrates Three Kings Day,” which he will be reading as part of the festivities.
This is a free family storytime event. It includes crafts, chocolates, songs, treats, hot chocolate and more.
- 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.: Enjoy Hot Chocolate, Storytime, 3 Kings Bread (Rosca De Reyes), Crafts, Chocolates, and Songs. Bring your instruments to join in the fun!
