Day of the Dead
October 30, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
The Consulate General of Mexico in Nogales, Arizona, and the Cultural Arts Committee are delighted to present Altares de Muertos (altar exhibition) made by community members in observance of Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead).
Día de Muertos is a Mexican holiday that focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember their love ones who have died. Practices related to this celebration include building altars called “ofrendas”, honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts.
Come join us and taste a delicious “pan de muerto”… a traditional Mexican pastry…
