Description

39th Annual Dia de los Muertos Celebration

On November 2, participants, many of whom paint their faces as Calaveras take part in a public procession where life size calaveras, personal and family items are carried and offered to the deceased family members at a large Community Altar. The procession and traditional blessing kicks off a festive celebration with arts, craft and food vendors, musical performances, face painting, and children's art workshops. Over 7,000 guests enjoy a community gathering that celebrates community, life and death.
