Mexican Day of the Dead Festival

Mexican Day of the Dead Festival
November 6

Observe Mexican Day of the Dead as we remember those friends and family members that are no longer with us. We celebrate the joy and happiness they brought into our lives with music, dance, art, and special foods. Bring a photo for our Ofrendas (memorial altar) honoring our loved ones and that special pet that left too soon. Enjoy performances by Mariachi Anacatlan, Relampago del Cielo, Los Cuates,  Xipe Totec and Joel Aceves.
