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. To create an altar please follow the link to the right.
Altars will be on display from October 28, 2019 to November 15, 2019.
Monday thru Friday from 10 am to 4 pm
Tuesdays from 10 am to 7 pm.
Weekends by appointment.
To create an altar please fill out the form at the link below.
