Please join the USCA’14 Host Committee and the National Latino AIDS Action Network (NLAAN) for a beautiful Dia de los Muertos tribute. In remembrance of those whom we have lost in the struggle of HIV/AIDS a memorial will be held in their honor. The Memorial will start with a traditional Mexican procession beginning at 6:15 p.m. outside the Hilton Hotel. Mariachis along with people dressed in traditional Mexican costumes will walk for one block to the South Embarcadero Marina Park where altars (ofrendas) have been created. Please feel free to bring remembrances of loved ones to place on the altars. While there is solemnness to this event, it is also a celebration of life and the party will begin after brief comments from NLAAN. Traditional Mexican food and beverages will be provided along with the opportunity to purchase additional items from gourmet food trucks. This memorable event will be colorful and festive so don’t forget to bring your cameras as we celebrate the impact that so many have had on our lives. Music and dancing will continue until 9pm.
