Mexican culture celebrates The Day of The Dead in a very different and unique way. With food, music, and trying to look at death with a positive and natural light, they build “altares” where they place flowers, pictures of their loved ones that have passed, and their favorite food. For one night a year, they believe their loved ones can come back and visit them.
Join this tradition and experience it at this two-day festival hosted by the Desert Botanical Garden. “Dia de Muertos” will be filled with Mexican music, dance, storytelling, and more.
Honor a loved one at the Community Altar by artist Rufina Ruiz López. At day’s end, Garden guests are invited to join performers in “La Procesión” a procession honoring passed loved ones through the Garden.
Tickets are now on sale at the Desert’s website.
