Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) is a holiday celebrated in Mexico and by Mexican Americans living in the U.S. and in Canada. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased, and bringing favorite foods and beverages to the grave sites of the departed. Scholars trace the origins of the modern holiday to indigenous observances dating back thousands of years, and to an Aztec festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl.
We will have music and children's activities.
Our very own professional photographer, Cynthia Whitney-Ward is putting together a beautiful Day of the Dead altar, with photos, candles and flowers. Please bring photos of loved ones who have passed on.
