Dia De Los Muertos at the Davis Cemetery District

The community is invited to the annual Dia de los Muertos Celebration from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27th, at the Davis Cemetery, 820 Pole Line Road.

This celebration is one of the last Mesoamerican indigenous influenced rituals, honoring mother earth and all ancestors. This celebration is part of an effort to create a community, a sense of belonging, and global awareness of cultural richness in a multicultural society.

The festivities will include Danza by Kulpulli Tlayolotl, Mariachi Puente, and much more.

Traditional hot chocolate and pan dulce treat also will be provided. The event is free but donations are welcome and appreciated.

There will be a collective altar honoring all ancestors. This event is free and open to the public and everyone is welcome to contribute to the altar or create their own.

This year we are seeking sponsors if you are interested in sponsoring this event. Please, Kristi Dvorak at cemcod@dcn.org.

For more information or to display an altar on Oct. 27, contact event co-coordinator Melissa Moreno at mmmorenophd@gmail.com or Christi Postlethwaite cemoffmgr@dcn.org
