día de los muertos parade
(From Marian Smith) How lucky we are to be in San Antonio at the same time this event is taking place -- it's close to the conference hotel, too. I copied this from the "San Antonio Current" website, and the AMS Newsletter in August also alerted us to this event:
The Mexican Cultural Institute (MCI) and the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures (ITC) team up for a collaborative offering that begins at ITC with the presentation of an altar created by UTSA Honors College students, snakes through Hemisfair in a lively procession led by URBAN-15’s elaborately costumed drum-and-dance troupe Carnaval de los Muertos, and culminates at MCI with hot chocolate, pán de muerto, tamales and the unveiling of an ofrenda honoring Tom Frost, the late local banking legend the event organizers remind was a “young immigrant as well as a beloved San Antonian who always showed respect and admiration for Mexican culture” (free, 6-9pm Fri, begins at 801 E. César Chavez Blvd., ends at 600 Hemisfair Plaza Way, texancultures.com).
