La Llorona, the weeping woman, is a legendary creature who haunts rivers, lakes, and lonely roads, endlessly weeping. She comes out at night, searching for her drowned children. Her story is told throughout Mexico, the Southwestern United States and into Latin America as a cautionary tale, where parents warn their own children to hurry home or La Llorona will take them away. 

La Llorona is the subject of countless popular tales and songs in a range of musical styles. It has also inspired visual artists, filmmakers and other forms of popular culture such as comic books.

Mano a Mano brings La Llorona to the Halloween Parade - October 31, 2005 7:00pm.
