Day of the Dead (Dia de los muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.
This Sunday, October 20, 2019, Dayton celebrates Dia de los Muertos, and honor the lives of loved ones who have passed. Pre-parade festivities start at 2pm. The parade starts at 4pm, and will travel through the Oregon District on Fifth Street, and arrive at the Missing Peace Art Space for the post-parade celebration from 5-8pm. There will be beautiful altars (offrendas) to enjoy, along with food, music, and dancing!
This event is a vibrant celebration and extra special way to carry on the memory of those we love and miss.
