Our friends at Calpulli Mexican Dance Company are hosting a family friendly game of La Loteria with the fun-loving “La Catrina,” the popular character created by artist Jose Guadalupe Posada. Printable cards are available here, and a handful of dried beans or other small objects can serve as fichas (game pieces). Open to all ages!
