DESCRIPTION

The “Day of the Dead” is celebrated in Mexico and in Latino communities throughout the United States and Canada. During the holiday, family and friends gather to festively remember those who have passed on to the spirit realm. On November 2, 2010, MCCLA will open its doors for Day of the Dead festivities from 6 pm - 10:30 pm. This year’s theme is “Death Becomes You/La Muerte Eres Tu”, is an attempt to guide some of those souls that have lost their way in the journey, support the souls who have lingered, and to nurture the spirits beginning their returns back to the spirit realm. This year’s exhibition features traditional and contemporary altars. The celebration includes a sugar skull demonstration, Danza Azteca, Pan de Muertos, mask making, face painting and more.
