City Deficit

"The city this year eliminated the grant program that funds the festival of altars at Garfield Park during the annual Day of the Dead celebration, leaving organizers scrambling to come up with $9,000." A mission-based nonprofit, The Marigold Project, backs the project. "The November 2 event attracts some 15,000 residents to celebrate the traditional Mexican holiday honoring the dead."
