Historically, a posada is a reenactment of Mary and Joseph looking for a place to stay during the 9 days before Christmas.  But in Guaymas, it means having a Christmas party.  This could be friends gathering together or a business/company having a party.  The city of Guaymas had a posada at the marina. 
Those who attended could buy raffle tickets to win one of the many wrapped gifts which ranged from toys to microwaves.
In between speeches by public officials and the raffle, the well-known (large) band Banda 3 Rios performed.
Thankfully everything was over by 8:30 pm. I say thankfully because the super-loud music from a previous posada only ended at 4:30 am.
