Day of the Dead / El Dia de Muertos
DAY OF THE DEAD CELEBRATION
The Day of the Dead is one of the most important Mexican holidays. Normally celebrated on November 1 or 2, it is a time for families to honor their departed by creating altars and offering them flowers, food and drink. People also dress as catrinas (skeletons) and write poems (often satirical) called calaveritas literarias (literary skulls).
This Day of the Dead celebration, sponsored by the WAGRO (Washington-Guerrero) Foundation and the City of Lynnwood, features a contest of Altars, Catrinas, and Calaveritas Literarias and is calling for contestants. A jury will determine the winners in each category and the first, second and third prizes have a monetary award.
Those interested in participating must apply by October 27th.
Free and open to the public
Please join us for this celebration of Mexican culture!
