For many years, Olvera Street merchants have celebrated La Fiesta de la Candelaria. It’s a ceremony in which kids dress up their baby Jesus dolls to have them blessed by trained professionals, followed by prizes, songs and celebration. Candelaria also involves a great big flock of candles throughout the Paseo, which looks intensely beautiful and makes the winter night that much warmer.
