This 4,000-year-old holiday celebrates the lives of loved ones who have passed. This celebration includes food from Mi Cocina and Mesa, el Jimador cocktails, cerveza from West Sixth Brewing, sweets by Cellar Door Chocolates and Mr. G’s Kettle Corn, art, folk dancers, street altars and a special pet altar, as well as fire and circus performers. At 8 p.m. the Rev. David Sanchez will bless the event and lead a candlelit procession. Workshops staffed by UofL’s Latin American and Latino Studies program will feature calaveras (sugar skull) face painting, sugar candy art, coloring and tissue flower construction. New this year, in partnership with Louisville Metro Animal Services, is an altar to honor and celebrate beloved four-legged family members who have passed.
