For the leadership of Long Beach Living, launching this festival is a way to bring the community together after so much time apart. Sal Flores, the Founder and CEO of Long Beach Living, shares how the festive family tradition of tamale making, eating, and connecting with loved ones during the holiday season inspired the creation of this festival: "As somebody who grew up with this holiday tradition, I remember making tamales with my grandma and my tias while sharing family stories, going to la plaza and seeing all the Christmas decorations, the folklórico dancers, the music, but best of all … eating delicious tamales on Christmas Eve together as a family." For Sal, the Greater Long Beach community is an extended family. He emphasizes, "I want people to feel right at home, to embrace their culture, their history, and at the same time introduce holiday traditions to people from different backgrounds."
