Día De Los Muertos Celebration
November 1, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
El Día de los Muertos, also known as All Soul’s Day, has roots in many traditions including the customs of native residents, mission-era Jesuit and Franciscan priests, Spanish colonists, Mexican settlers, and even citizens of the United States arriving in the 19th century.
The adobe walls of Tumacácori’s historic church will shelter a traditional altar which holds offerings in memory of loved ones. From Friday, October 23rd through Monday, November 2nd, all visitors will be invited to leave photographs, gifts, tokens, messages, toys, or other traditional items as part of this community installation. On the evening of November 1st, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., the park will also offer free entrance, treats, face-painting, music, crafts, and candlelit living history for visitors wishing to celebrate!
