Both stalwarts that sprung from HemisFair ’68, the Mexican Cultural Institute (MCI) and the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures (ITC) team up for a collaborative offering that begins at ITC with the presentation of an altar created by UTSA Honors College students, snakes through Hemisfair in a lively procession led by URBAN-15’s elaborately costumed drum-and-dance troupe Carnaval de los Muertos, and culminates at MCI with hot chocolate, pán de muerto, tamales and the unveiling of an ofrenda honoring Tom Frost, the late local banking legend the event organizers remind was a “young immigrant as well as a beloved San Antonian who always showed respect and admiration for Mexican culture.”
