Culture on the Cheap
NEXT WEEK: Day of the Dead
Halloween will soon be upon us. Shortly thereafter will be yet another holiday of which yours truly is rather fond: Day of the Dead. On that note those of you in search something to do this Monday, November 2nd, need not look any further than Williamsburg’s very own El Puente Garden. From the CB1 Yahoo group:
You are invited to El Puente’s Espiritu Tierra Community Garden on November 2nd for our DÃa de los Muertos Celebration and Garden Fundraiser! The event will take place at the garden (on S. 2nd btw. Roebling & Driggs) from 4:30-6:30pm. This event is free and open to all ages; however, there will be food & raffle tickets for sale, and donations are always welcome…
Among the treats promised are educational games, movies, live performances, traditional food, an altar and art work by Chicano and Mexican artists. All proceeds will benefit El Puente’s community garden which, if you haven’t seen it already, you should. It’s impressive!
