A Celebration of Life

T he month of October is synonymous with Halloween, Día de los Muertos, and breast cancer awareness. These events are not only near and dear to our hearts here at the firm, but near and dear to the hearts of many of our clients. To honor them, Herrman & Herrman is sponsoring two big events in Corpus Christi. The first event is the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. The walk is set for Saturday, Oct. 20 at Bayfront Park, and you can learn more at both facebook. com/makingstridescorpuschristi and makingstrideswalk.org/ corpuschristitx . This walk is a celebration of life. It’s a show of support for those with breast cancer, as well as a remembrance of those we’ve lost to the all-too-common disease. As part of the event, you can donate to the American Cancer Society or join the walk — or both! We look forward to seeing you there! The other big event in October is the Día de los Muertos Festival in Corpus Christi. The festival is on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 3 p.m. until midnight and is located throughout the Marina Arts District in downtown Corpus Christi. As part of the festival, the arts district will be hosting the Hecho- a-Mano Art Expo, an arts and crafts expo, as well as a fine art exhibition, a youth art exhibition, an altar display, and a piñata contest — the 8th Annual Extravagancia de Piñatas. The piñata contest helps benefit local K-12 teachers. Herrman & Herrman is proud to sponsor Lucha Kaboom during the Día de los Muertos Festival. Lucha Kaboom is a celebration of Mexican-style wrestling, in which luchadores don colorful and distinct masks.

Onlookers are encouraged to join in the fun by dressing up in their luchador costumes and masks. Come as your favorite luchador, or come as a creation all your own. All members of the family are invited! While the Día de los Muertos Festival will be held on Oct. 27, the holiday of Día de los Muertos begins on Wednesday, Oct. 31 and runs through Friday, Nov. 2. It’s celebrated alongside Halloween (Oct. 31), All Saints’ Day (Nov. 1), and All Souls’ Day (Nov. 2). Día de los Muertos is a day of remembrance for those we have lost. It’s a celebration of our family, friends, and those who are important to us. The holiday has its origins in Aztec festivals from hundreds of years ago. Over time, it became the holiday we know today — a holiday to honor those who have died. Whether you’re at the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk or the Día de los Muertos Festival — or just enjoying Halloween around the community — we hope to see you out there! Stay safe and have fun!
