Juan is a typical 40 year-old slacker. One day Havana is overrun by zombies and Juan decides to take advantage of the situation. “Juan of the dead, we kill your loved ones” is his slogan. His mission: helping people get rid of the zombies around them…at a good price. But things get worse, and while everyone heads to the sea to run away, Juan has no choice but to become a hero.

Carnaval Latino and Parade of the Americas

View Full Event Description

Join us for the 19th annual Carnaval Latino festival in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month on October 13 through October 15, 2018.

The Hispanic culture has thrived in New Orleans for almost 300 years, and Spanish influence can be seen all over the city. To celebrate the best of Latin culture, Carnaval Latino returns to the downtown area.

The Hispanic American Musicians and Artists Cultural Association hosts the festival to celebrate the music, food, art and culture of Latin America. Numerous musicians, both locally and from overseas, perform to honor the rich Spanish heritage in New Orleans.

In addition to live music and fantastic food, the Krewe of Quetzal will kick off the celebration with a New Orleans style parade, Desfile de Las Americas, or Parade of the Americas, on Saturday, October 13. See the Hispanic community ride in elaborate costumes, throwing souvenirs to the crowds. After the parade, festival goers will then enjoy Latin music, art, food and drink, during Carnaval Latino’s festival at Generations Hall in the Warehouse District.

For more information on the festival and parade, visit Carnaval Latino’s official website.
