Day of the Dead – Dia de los Muertos

Thursday November 1st Noon-10pm and Friday November 2nd 2pm-8pm, FREE ENTRY

Mirta Guzman will have our BIG altar back

Serving Pozole, Soup and Hot Chocolate

You are invited to the celebration of a traditional Latin American holiday that combines pre-Colombian festivals and indigenous traditions with European rituals for honoring the dead. It is celebrated every year at this same time as Halloween and the Christian holy days of All Saints Day and All Souls Day.

In homes, families arrange “ofrendas” or altars. Tables are covered with fruit, flowers, vegetables, bread, candy, candles, incense, photos of the deceased, papel picado (paper cut-outs) represent the sky. Marigold petals are sprinkled to create a path for the spirits to follow on their return.

Please feel free to bring photos of those who have passed over, along with mementos and flowers.

The hall will be open for the honoring of “Dia de los Angelitos” (remembering children who have died) ,  Thursday Nov 1 from Noon-10pm.

On Friday  Nov. 2, Dia de los Muertos”, the BCC  will be open from 2pm to 8pm. This day is not a sad time, but one rather of remembering and rejoicing. Musicians are welcome. 

Please join us for any or all of the celebration you can.   To volunteer: watch over the altar or bake some sweets for the BCC to sell which will help cover the cost of the altar, please call 868-2128 or email kateross@bocenter.org.
