Day of the Dead Celebration

November 1st & 2nd from 11:00 - 6:00 pm
Celebrate el Dia de los Muertos with us.  We have authentic Day of the Dead handicrafts and supplies from Mexico to add to your collection or alter.  Try Pan de Muerto (Dead Bread), and visit our Ofrenda. Come decorate sugar skulls, children welcome! Decorating sugar skulls is a traditional folk art from Southern Mexico used to celebrate the Day of the Dead. Mounds of sugar skulls are sold in open air markets leading up to the holiday, and are decorated with icing, bright foil, colored sugar, and often the name of the departed. They are used to decorate home altars and cemeteries to honor departed loved ones. Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de los Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout the world. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. The celebration takes place on November 1 & 2 in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day.
