ABOUT DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS

Originating in Mexico, Día de los Muertos has soared in popularity and is now celebrated and recognized in many different parts of the world.  Día de los Muertos expresses the beauty and mystery of life and death. For many, it is a time of celebration; for others, it is a time of introspection. At its most potent, it is a balanced blend of the two. Join us as we celebrate this captivating Latin holiday.
