Día de Los Muertos is an exciting opportunity for children and families to learn and participate in this vibrant Mexican holiday. Several community partners have joined this event to help by setting up many hands-on crafts, art, cookie decorating, face painting, festive food, yummy sweets and more traditional activities.

Día de Los Muertos is a multi-day holiday that involves family and friends gathering to celebrate the memory of loved ones who have passed. Traditions connected with the holiday include building colorful and detailed altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using calaveras (sugar skulls), golden marigolds to guide the spirits, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, while also visiting their graves with these as gifts.
