10/27/2019

Event submitted by: Mighty Tieton Events

Location: Tieton

608 Wisconsin Ave

12-5 p.m - Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a vibrant community celebration honoring both los muertos and the beauty of life. Day of the Dead celebrations began in Central America and have roots in indigenous and Catholic traditions. Sweet sugar skulls, bright colors, and bitter-smelling cempazuchitl (calendula) flowers evoke vibrant, ephemeral life and bitter, inevitable death—embracing both. Each year Tieton Arts & Humanities hosts a celebration and creates a large community altar for everyone to add to. Visitors can bring photos of loved ones, write messages, help decorate, and bring candies or breads. This provides a special opportunity to remember those who are no longer with us. The celebration will be October 28. The community Altar Exhibition will be available from October 28 - November 18. Open Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 12 - 3 p.m. A rtist  Fulgencio Lazo  will be creating a traditional sand painting in the warehouse.  There will be face painting, dancing horses, decorated altars, local musical/dance group performances, a parade, sugar skull decorating, and a whole lot more!
