About Day of the Dead
The Aztecs developed the ritual some 3,000 years ago because they believed one should not grieve the loss of a beloved ancestor who passed. Instead, the Aztecs celebrated their lives and welcomed the return of their spirits to the land of the living once a year. Altars are used to welcome the ancestors’ spirits. Join us this First Friday to carry on the tradition. Download event flyer
