Celebrate Dίa de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) with fun for the entire family at Casa de la Guerra on Sunday, October 23 from noon to 3 pm. This 16th annual celebration embraces the Latin American culture behind Day of the Dead. Day of the Dead is an annual observance of the spirits of loved ones who have passed away – rather than mourning their death, Dίa de los Muertos is intended to be a rich celebration of life. Loved ones build decadent altars or ofrendas in their homes and shower them in personal mementos such as their loved ones favorite food, drink, and even toys for the souls of little ones or angelitos.
Casa de La Guerra’s celebration observes the traditions of this special holiday while keeping the kids entertained. There is a wide array of fun, free crafts including: decorating sugar skulls, assembling skeleton masks, making tissue paper flowers, block prints and tin artwork. In addition to crafts there is traditional cuisine including pan de muerto or bread of the dead and Mexican hot chocolate. Join in on this wonderful celebration of life this fall.
