Family Fun Saturday -- Dia de los Muertos

day of the dead post 

Twelve people joined us for our first Family Fun Saturday! Each participant made at least two flowers, one for us, and one for our annual Ofrenda. A bilingual powerpoint shared facts and information about Dia De Los Muertos and participants used crayons to color special coloring sheets. Family Fun Saturdays occur every month until the summer season. Please check our Calendar of Events (under the Explore tab) or our follow our Facebook to stay current on all the Museum's events. November's theme is branding and participants will make Twisty Cows.

An Ofrenda is a special altar prepared for the Dia De Los Muertos holiday commonly practiced in Mexico and Latin America.This year's Ofrenda is meant to echo the traditions of the Mexican State of Michoacán. The Ofrenda will be on display in the Museum Gallery until November 9, 2019. As in past years individuals who wish to bring in pictures of deceased loved ones for the display are welcome to do so.
