Celebrate the tradition of Día de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, with a two-day festival filled with music, dance and storytelling. Children will love the crafts and face painting, and the whole family will enjoy the Mercado filled with art, jewelry and other wares. Each day ends with La Procesión, a procession through the Garden by all the performers and audience members, concluding with a traditional burning of troubles. La Procesión represents the ancient tradition of marching as a community to burial sites in order to honor those who have passed.
