Dia de los Muertos

Posted by: Karin Hoffman

Looking for something to do this weekend? Check out the Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festival this Saturday and Sunday, November 1st and 2nd at the Center House at Seattle Center. TMCA (Taller Mexicano Para La Cultura y Las Artes) is hosting this FREE (!!) event which includes art exhibits, short films and animation, print making, sugar skulls, an opportunity to participate in the creation of a community ofrenda, (an alter to celebrate the lives of loved ones) and much more!

The Burke Museum Education staff will also be showcasing a wonderful hands-on activity (paper skeleton puppets) so stop by and say hello!
