Please join us for our annual Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos, a Mexican holiday that honors departed family, friends, and ancestors. Eunice Loredo will do a presentation on this tradition, its origins, and how it is celebrated in Mexico.

Students will also have an opportunity to try their hand at making traditional decorations, papel picado, paper skull masks, tissue paper flowers, and clay skulls. They may also explore the Hudson Museum’s PreColumbian collections.

ThisĀ event is geared for Middle and High School students and Spanish classes.
