Join us for a traditional Mexican celebration! Create a coronita (crown) of fresh marigolds and papel picado (perforated paper) to honor a loved one who has passed. Tour the grave sites and explore the history of Santa Monica's ancestors. Learn the philosophy and history of the day. Watch a documentary and discover how a small town in Mexico prepares for Dia de los Muertos. Participate in the closing traditional Nahuatl Ceremony with live music, and enjoy fresh tamales afterward. Come participate, learn and honor your ancestors.
