14th Annual Celebration of
DIA DE LOS MUERTOS
Saturday/November 1...4 to 8 pm...FREE FOR ALL AGES
This bilingual family event is open to the public and includes activities for all ages. A community Ofrenda (alter) will be constructed and everyone is invited to add something in memory of a lost loved one - a favorite candy bar, a drink, a copy of a photograph, a flower, the title of a song, a scented note…
This year we are pleased to include a musical performance by Michael Mayes of GraveSave.org, an organization whose mission is the preservation of music history. He'll perform music and display grave rubbings from famous musicians including Jimi Hendrix, Hank Williams, Townes Van Zandt and others.
