This Thursday at MCM, join us in celebrating Dia de los Muertos, a holiday celebrated in Mexico and other Latin American cultures acknowledging our ongoing relationship with ancestors and loved ones that have passed away. Through the creation of altars containing ofrendas, we honor and remember those who came before us. These ofrendas, or offerings, usually include sugar skulls, marigolds, the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and favorite things of the deceased such as sports memorabilia or music. This week at MCM, we’re thrilled to welcome the following groups to help us celebrate this very special holiday:

Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts, with festive arts and crafts
Hector Zavala, demonstrating some of his award-winning altars
Encantada Gallery, with sugar skulls, paper flowers, and more
Alejandro’s Trade, Andean wares including catrinas and other festive goods
Floreria la Poblanita, selling Marigolds and other floral arrangements
The Rabbit Hole, offering donation-based festive face painting

Check out the MCCLA website for more information about upcoming Dia de los Muertos events happening in the Mission.
