Day of the Dead Festival
Experience the rich visual, musical, dance and culinary traditions of Mexico and Central America while celebrating this joyous holiday. Children and adults can collaborate with artists to create traditional arts and crafts. Following traditional dance performances, at dusk, guests will join dancers and musicians in a beautiful candlelight parade from the LASC to the Old Episcopal burial ground to view the alluring exhibition of altars (ofrendas) created by local artists and community groups.
Casa de la Cultura Hispana de Lexington will create a traditional Mexican alter in the LASC library, containing symbols and imagery typically found in the southern regions of Mexico and celebrating the memories of family, friends and public figures.
Latin American food will be available for purchase from a variety of authentic food vendors.
