Bristol Herald Courier — Posted: Tuesday, December 18, 2012 9:27 pm | Updated: 9:42 pm, Tue Dec 18, 2012. Actors portraying Mary and Joseph made their rounds through downtown Bristol in a Tuesday evening re-enactment of the biblical couple’s journey through Bethlehem as they look for a place to spend the night. The re-enactment, titled “Journey’s End,” is Bristol’s local interpretation of the Latino tradition of Las Posadas (The Inns). Downtown restaurants serve as “innkeepers” and carolers accompany the couple as they proceed by candlelight. The final “inn” welcomes the couple and celebrates their arrival. The 13th annual event was sponsored by Believe in Bristol.
