A Mexican Holiday in Fort Lauderdale

"Dia de Los Muertos", or the Day of the Dead, is a holiday that has its roots in Mexico. Often confused with Halloween, the Day of the Dead represents a unique mix of the macabre, and you can experience its eerie powers right here in Fort Lauderdale.

Festivities and events include a craft crypt, ofrendas (altars decorated to honor those that have passed), and Mexican and Latin American dance performances. The centerpiece for this annual celebration is the Skeleton Processional, a lively and colorful parade of "calavera" masks and ghostly paper mache skeletons.
