Day of the Dead Celebration. THURSDAY, November 2nd, 2017 get ready for the eighth installment of this ever popular and very spirited festival of remembrance and revelry. On this date, it is believed that the gateway between Mictlan, the ancient Aztec land of the dead, and our own opens up so we can dance and sing with our lost loved ones for one special time of year.

The main event spectacle begins when the community will converge up in traditional skeleton garb at Fort Lauderdale’s Huizenga Plaza for the SKELETON PROCESSIONAL. At 6pm Officials from the Fort Lauderdale City Commission and the Consulate General of Mexico shall welcome participants. At 6:30pm led by Event Founder Jim Hammond from PUPPET NETWORK and his giant skeleton puppets, over 45 giant puppets up to 19’ tall and 1000 skeletons will follow Mariachi Musicians along Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale towards SW 3rd Avenue in a colorful sidewalk parade through the Fort Lauderdale Historic District. The Processional ends at the FOLKLORICO STAGE at SW 3rd Avenue which will be closed for our MUERTOS STREET FESTIVAL from 5-10pm. Interspersed throughout, you will find art installations, pop up ofrendas, mask making art tents, low riders, Latin American food trucks and interactive street performers.  View Details.
