Community members in skeleton costumes and masks, many with giant puppets, will meander down the Riverwalk through the Historic District and downtown Himmarshee in remembrance of our ancestors. Dr. Horacio Saavedra, consul general of Mexico and city officials will kick-off the parade while Mariachi musicians lead the way as thousands of skeletons stream from Huizenga Plaza west along the Riverwalk, to head north on SW 3rd Avenue where the celebration continues at Revolution Live Entertainment Complex.
