ABOUT DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS

Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos is a celebration of Hispanic heritage which honors loved ones who have passed away. Día de los Muertos expresses the beauty and mystery of life and death. For many, it is a time of celebration; for others, it is a time of introspection. At its most potent, it is a balanced blend of the two. Join us as we celebrate this captivating hispanic tradition.
