Thanks to everyone who came out to Sofia Quintero Arts and Cultural Center Sat. Nov. 2nd and celebrated Dia de los Muertos with us. Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 7th for our 2020 event!
Altars or Ofrendas are created in order to welcome back the souls of deceased loved ones. Decorating a space with the items that they enjoyed before their passing, helps to comfort and refresh their souls after their long journey back to the world of the living. The Day of the Dead is not a sad or solemn event, but rather a celebration of the life that was shared.
Thank you for your support in 2019. Look forward to seeing you all in 2020.
Visit the Sofia Quintero Arts and Cultural Center to view this years Altars.
