Description

Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead), is a traditional Mexican holiday that is celebrated on November 2, the day after All Saints Day. On this day, many believe that a deceased person’s soul returns to be with their family and friends. Join us from 5:00 – 9:00 pm, for a grand celebration with food, music, and kid’s activities. Tour the museum and see the altars and artwork created by local artists and school kids. At 8:00 pm join the parade of calaveras (skeletons) for a short walk downtown. This evening event is free to the public.
