Feliz Dia de los Muertos!

If you are in the New Orleans area and want to check out some Day of the Dead festivities, come on down to the US Mint at 400 Esplanade to take part in a celebration sponsored by Tulane University's Stone Center for Latin American Studies, the Louisiana State Museum, and the Mexican Consulate of New Orleans. There will be lots of family-friendly activities this afternoon, from 2-4pm, including a Mariachi band, folkloric dancing, food, and, of course, the Day of the Dead altar. All this will take place in the outdoor courtyard, Barracks St. side, of the US Mint. See you there!

UPDATE: Sunday, Nov. 1, 2009, 6:08pm: Back home from the Day of the Dead festivities. It was a lot of fun. The whole family had a nice time. Hope you made it.
