Welcome to November! For anyone who celebrates Hispanic heritage, you’ll likely be aware that the first couple of days of November are also the days that Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is celebrated. Most people know the iconic holiday that originated from Mexico, where people pay their respects to family and friends who have pressed at special altars. For those who practice, there will be a Dia de los Muertos celebration at Camp North End this Saturday, and tickets are free!
Brought to you by the Latin American Coalition and in conjunction with the Levine Museum of the South, the celebration will begin at 12pm and last through until 5pm. For five festive hours, enjoy altar displays, live mariachi music, native, folk, dance performances, and even a sugar skull workshop.
Since the celebrations will be taking place at Camp North End, there’ll be plenty to do and see once 5pm passes by, like grab a drink at one of the amazing venues there. Black Moth Bars is offering darkly-inspired cocktails, Leah and Louise is one of the hottest, greatest restaurants in the city, and Saru by Bow Ramen has some amazing ramen to warm up these chilly autumn evenings.
Check here for Saturday’s festivities!
