Following will be a short cultural program by Krewe of Mayahuel and other Culture Bearers. This is a festive yet solemn event, we encourage you to have a good time in a respectful way, Day of the Dead is a celebration that has many forms in different parts of the world and everyone is welcome. Remember to bring a candle. There will be a small altar in front of the cemetery where you can put a small offering or a picture of a loved one (if the item is valuable to you please don’t forget to take it with you when you leave).
