DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS EN HAPEVILLE
Funded by the Hapeville Main Street Board and supported by local businesses and volunteers, this event included four free community maker events that culminated in a festive, family-friendly celebration and parade. Workshop participants learned about Day of the Dead and its origins while making traditional Mexican crafts. Parade attendees were then immersed in an interactive experience that included authentic Mexican food, music and welcoming fellowship with their friends, neighbors and visitors.
