Day Of The Dead Celebration Ft. Lauderdale Florida

By
Real Estate Agent with United Realty Group

The Day of the Dead is alive and well in South Florida. Come join us for this unique celebration on Wednesday November 2,  2016 from 4 to 6 pm beginning at the Huizenga Plaza located at 32 East Las Olas Blvd in Ft. Lauderdale. 

Also known as Dia De Los Muertos ( spanish translation), this holiday originated in Mexico over 3000 years ago.  Family members would go to the cemetary, clean the tombs and remember those that passed.  There would be music, storytelling, tequila and lots and lots of food. Though it may sound somber it was the opposite. Friends and family would gather to celebrate the life of their ancestors when they were here on earth. It was and is a time to look death in the eye with no fear. 

South Florida is multi-cultural and this event grows each year. It began in 2010 with 750 participants and has grown to over 10,000 in 2015. Come in costume or get your face painted as you watch or join the procession of skeletons marching . Over 1000 skeletons and mariachis will be walking down the Riverwalk. It is a unique and fun remembrance to experience.  For more information contact: dayofthedeadflorida.com.

Hasta luego!  (See you there)

Good morning Janice.  Unfortunately, I'll be working.  Though, it sounds like a fun celebration.

I remember learning about the Day of the Dead in Spanish class.  For us Catholics, this is All Saints Day.

Those are great photos, Janice!  I didn't really know much about the Day of the Dead until recent years.
