Day of the Dead – Program Series


 Death marks the irreversible cessation of all biological functions that sustain an organism. On the other hand, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a vibrant holiday observed from October 31 to November 2, dedicated to celebrating the lives of departed loved ones. Families honor their ancestors by expressing love and respect.

In Mexico, revelers don colorful makeup and costumes, participating in parades, parties, songs, and dances. Families create altars at home or in public spaces, adorned with offerings for their deceased relatives. As autumn arrives, we invite you to join us in commemorating Dia de los Muertos at the Lorenzo Cultural Center. Explore the rich traditions, learn about the Day of the Dead, and pay tribute to your beloved departed through our community altar..
