Day of the Dead
Join us in the social center on October 29, 2017 from 11 am -1 pm as we learn about Day of the Dead. We will also be serving some traditional Mexican food; tacos, tostadas, rice, beans, guacamole and a variety of salsas. There will be stations where children can learn how to make Mexican arts and crafts. We will also display an altar of the dead, please bring a picture of your deceased loved ones. And last but not least, a special presentation by a Folkloric Dance Group!
According to National Geographic for Kids, Day of the Dead combines the ancient Aztec custom of celebrating ancestors with All Souls’ Day, a holiday that Spanish brought to Mexico starting in the early 1500s.
The holiday, which is celebrated mostly in Mexico on November 1 and 2, is like a family reunion—except dead ancestors are the guests of honor. Day of the Dead is a joyful time that helps people remember the deceased and celebrate their memory.
Don’t miss the opportunity to learn and experience a different culture!
$5 per person or $20 per family
