WHERE TO MEET
Cepeda Branch Library | Looks for folks in Capital Metro and Smart Trips gear!

DĺA DE LOS MUERTOS (Day of the Dead) is an important Latin American tradition that takes place on November 1st and 2nd. It is a time when friends and family gather to honor and remember loved ones – not through mourning, but through celebration! The origins trace back to the pre-Columbian era when death was viewed as a transformation or continuation of life. This ancient belief evolved into the modern tradition of commemorating loved ones with altars decorated with sugar skulls, flowers, photographs, favorite foods and memorabilia of the deceased. Family and friends share stories and memories, sing songs, and play music. In Austin, Mexic-Arte Museum has continued some of these traditions, transformed others, and created new expressions to produce today’s Viva La Vida Fest!
