The lives of the dearly departed are
honored today with flowers.
Day of the Dead, or Dia de Los Metros, is
a Mexican holiday celebrated in that country as well as ours.
The holiday focuses on remembering family
and friends who have died.
Downtown Corpus Christi is celebrating the
day of the dead with a street festival.
The party kicks off at 3:00 p.m. today and
runs until midnight.
The location for all the fun centers
around La Retama Park.
The Day of the Dead celebration includes
live music, an art expo, and a kid's play area and all of it is free and open
to the public.
