The House of Culture in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, outdid itself with an exhibit dedicated to the members of the community who have passed away. With Day of the Dead celebrated on November 2, the House of Culture committee set up a beautiful display titled “Dia de los Finados”.
The Finados tradition invites the community to remember the dearly departed and helps support them through their spiritual journey. The exhibit contained three displays of how differently the San Pedro Catholic Community, the Mexican Aztecs and the Maya People observed the Day of the Dead and educated on the month long activities that took place during November. Traditional food and drinks were served to those who gathered during the opening of the exhibit on Monday, November 2, at the San Pedro House of culture.
The Exhibit is open to the public.
