Dia de los Muertos ~ Day of the Dead - Santa Rosa

12/Noon-4pm - FAMILY DAY - Oct., 1, 2022.

Día de los Muertos is celebrated throughout Latin America,
but is more closely associated with Mexico, where it originated.
A joyous remembrance of the lives of family members & loved ones
who have died, the holiday is a celebration of the cycle of life.
Traditionally, it is said the souls of the dead return to visit the living
for a few brief hours during the celebrations.

In Mexico, Día de los Muertos is marked by festive celebrations to honor
the deceased. Cemeteries are cleaned & decorated, special food
& candies made & home altars are designed with offerings (ofrendas)
to the dead of the things they enjoyed most in life, including food, drink
& music.
