Day of the Dead, a Mexican celebration, occurs around the same time of year as Halloween, although it is a completely different holiday with rich symbolism and traditions celebrating deceased family and friends in a colorful and joyous way.

Celebrate Day of the Dead with crafts and activities, Pan de Muertos, and entertaining and educational virtual content!

Order your Dia de los Muertos Celebration Kit to celebrate this cultural event with your family at home. Learn the significance of the event, how to build your own ofrenda using the kit contents, and how this event relates to the Mitchell Park Domes.

A link to our virtual program will be included with the kit. The program link will go live on October 29.
