Kids in the Courtyard: Funny Bones! Fèt Gede, Haitian All Souls Day Celebration
Celebrate Fèt Gede, Haiti’s festival of the ancestors, a jubilant holiday much like Día de los Muertos, Mardi Gras and Halloween all rolled into one. Learn about Gede, the trickster spirit who revels in life and laughs at death, and then create your own giggling skeleton puppet. Come dressed in costume, solve riddles, and play traditional Haitian games to celebrate life! Inspired by In Extremis: Death and Life in 21st-Century Haitian Art.
