“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.”
The entrance to this event is on Yakima Street. This is a drive-thru event, you will not park or get out of your vehicle. We will hand you a to-go bag and you can enjoy the entertainment as you wait in line and exit on Mission Street.
