Día de los Muertos Celebration

Join us right after the “Halloween Hoopla” city parade for the Fourth Annual Día de los Muertos altar competition. We will celebrate one of the oldest traditions in Mexico that dates back to the Aztec period. All children and their families are invited to paint sugar skulls, view ofrendas/altars and see the artwork on view.
