Day of the Dead is celebrated from Mexico to Patagonia. and focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember the loved ones who have died. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars decorated with favorite foods, beverages and possessions of the departed. This year, the Multicultural Center is accepting donations from the community for the creation and decoration of tombs or altars.
All proceeds generated from food sales, altars, tombs and activities will go to the Center and its programs. The event will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3. A dance will be held following the Day of the Dead celebration, from 6 to 9 p.m.
