Día de Muertos / Day of the Dead

November 2 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Celebrating a centuries-old tradition rooted in Latin American cultures, the Springs Preserve will present its colorful 10th annual Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) event, Nov. 2-4, 2018, 4pm-9pm.

This 3,000-year-old Hispanic celebration honoring loved ones is full of joy and tradition. This family-friendly event blends rich customs with exciting activities such as live theater and dance performances, altars, mariachis, face painting, sugar skull decorating and an art exhibition.

One of the highlights of the family-friendly celebration is the altars local residents, community groups and artists create to honor deceased relatives. Participants decorate the altars with photographs, burning candles and incense, and display favorite foods of their loved ones. Poems with fun phrases and some that make fun of death are recited to lighten the mood; also, music and dance are part of the traditional celebration.
