Come hear about the traditions, help build an “ofrenda,” and enjoy music and dance performances in celebration of Dia De Los Muertos.
Last year film goers fell in love with Pixar’s COCO. The entire movie was inspired by the Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos. Come learn more about this thoughtful and creative way to honor our ancestors. The meaning of each symbol and artistic part of a traditional “ofrenda” (altar/table) will be explained. A large and elaborate “ofrenda” will be available to welcome a (5×7 or smaller) photocopy of your favorite ancestor.
