Guests can participate in the spiritual side of the holiday by lighting candles and leaving notes for loved ones at the community ofrenda. All day, attendees can watch aerial silk demonstrations, folkloric dances by Everything Goes Dance Company and live music.
Visitors will enjoy delicious local eats from food trucks. Children can also make cultural crafts, like papel picado, skull masks, devotional candle decorations, buttons and more.
