Many thousands celebrated the Day of the Dead in Ft. Lauderdale on November 2, 2015.
It was opened by the Consul General of Mexico at the Huizenga Plaza, who spoke about important Mexico is to the manufacturing of everything from cell phones to car parts. This was followed by an invocation to the four directions and upwards to heaven. Mariachi musicians led a procession of enormous skeletons, such as the one shown here. It went west along Riverwalk and ended at Revolution Live, where music and dance performances from Latin America, and arts & crafts displays, kept the crowd entertained.
