History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of the community’s past by making heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, invites the community to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with “Ofrendas,” its annual homage to the colorful traditions of Mexico’s Día de los Muertos.
The cultural immersion exhibit contains both fine art and creative community memorial altars or “ofrendas” covered in photographs, flowers and favorite items of the dearly departed. This year’s associated activities will include family fun on opening day, a Community Conversation about the origins of Day of the Dead and an evening of parades, costumes and revelry on Saturday, November 2.
