Día de los Muertos | Day of the Dead – Drive Thru Event

November 1, 2021 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Day of the Dead Drive Thru
Join the Hispanic Business Council and the Wenatchee Valley Museum for a Day of the Dead DRIVE-THRU celebration on Monday, November 1 from 4 to 6 PM! Take home FREE fun family craft activities, enjoy food and drinks while watching local mariachi and folklorico groups perform. It’s a celebration you won’t want to miss!

 

“Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a tradition first practiced thousands of years ago by indigenous peoples such as the Aztecs and the Toltecs. They didn’t consider death the end of one’s existence but simply another chapter of life. Rather than grieve their dead, ancient Mexicans celebrated the lives of the deceased and honored their memories. During Día de los Muertos, observed Oct. 31- Nov. 2, they believed the dead had a brief window to leave the spirit realm and visit their loved ones in the mortal world.”

 

We have moved the flow of traffic from our parking lot to the MakerSpace access. You will enter at the Centennial Park parking lot on Yakima and drive behind the Museum past the entrance to our MakerSpace and wrap up to exit onto Mission Street. Day of the Dead to-go bags with craft suppiles and other goodies will be handed to you as you drive by.
This event is a partnership between the Museum and the Hispanic Business Council and is sponsored by GLP Attorneys and Swire Coca-Cola.
