– Families are invited to celebrate Día de los Ninos with a game night of Loteria at the Centennial Park Banquet Room in Paso Robles on Friday, April 28. The evening promises to be filled with fun as players compete to fill their tabla, or board, before their opponents.

Similar to bingo, players will use tokens, traditionally raw beans, to mark spots on their tabla as a designated card announcer randomly pulls illustrated cards, including “La Luna” or “El Arbol,” and improvises poetic descriptions to match spaces on the tablas. A shout of “¡lotería!” or “¡buenas!” declares victory for one lucky player, ending the round. Prizes and pizza will add to the excitement of the evening.

“This will be the 7th year the Paso Robles City Library has recognized this special day,” says Paso Robles Library Youth Services Librarian Melissa Bailey, “This year, the library and recreation services is teaming up with the local community group Mujeres de Acción. We are excited to join forces for Lotería, a fun, bilingual bingo-like event that includes all family members in celebrating children and literacy.”

“We are excited to participate in this event in partnership with the City of Paso Robles Community Services Department,” said Yessenia Echevarria, Founder of Mujeres de Acción. “Children deserve to be celebrated every day and we hope this event honors their presence, joy, and happiness in our lives.”

The Loteria game night is a drop-in event that welcomes families to participate in the festivities. The event will take place at the Centennial Park Banquet Room. Guests can drop in from 5-7 p.m.
