Día de los Muertos at Buena High

The third annual Día de los Muertos event is going to take place on Wednesday, October 28, from 6 – 8 p.m. in the hallways of Buena High School.  Día de los Muertos is a holiday that celebrates the lives of those who have passed in many countries in Latin America.  In Mexico, it is a joyous two days of displaying altars and offerings for deceased family members and in no way is a sad time!  At Buena, the students and the Spanish teachers transform the place into a little mini-Mexico in order to give the students the opportunity to really experience this cultural day hands on. The students are in charge of making altars for a person of their choosing, making authentic desserts, performing, promoting the event, designing the t-shirts and decorating.   During the event, the whole community comes out!  It’s a night filled with celebratory remembrance of those who have passed, performances, raffles, games, face-painting, delicious food and drinks, art work and gallery walks of the altar displays and more. Please join them in this celebration.
