Las Fiestas de Cruz (The Feast of the Holy Cross) is a special and annual event. The popular celebration of chanted rosaries based on a Catholic tradition in honor of the Cross that Puertoricans inherited from Spain became further ingrained on the island by survivors of an earthquake that struck many years ago. Because Las Fiestas de Cruz is a long-standing testament to key cultural expressions of Puerto Rico, and is still practiced by the Puertorican community in East Harlem, inspired and influenced, LP21 has consistently made it a point to celebrate them. This event has primarily been used to strengthen family and community ties through communal rejoicing, and has been celebrated to ensure that these oral and community traditions thrive in the Diaspora and for generations to come!
