LASC’s Day of the Dead Festival Scheduled for Nov. 1
The 10th annual Day of the Dead, or “Dia de los Muertos,” festival will bring Latino and non-Latino families together for a fun, participatory experience.
The Tuesday, Nov. 1 festival hosted by the Living Arts & Science Center at the Old Episcopal Burying Ground is a celebration of the musical, culinary and dance tradition observed in parts of Mexico, Central and South America.
Event-goers will hear live music, participate in hands-on activities like arts and crafts, eat traditional food, talk to artists and see the candlelight parade, which will take people through the cemetery to see an exhibition of altars.
Some of the crafts include painting sugar skulls and contributing to a community art piece created by area schools and other community partners.
The festival starts at the Living Arts & Science Center and moves to the Old Episcopal Burying Ground on the corner of East Third Street and Elm Tree Lane following the parade. Festivities begin at 5 p.m. and conclude at 9 p.m.
