Día de los Muertos is a vibrant, festive traditional celebration of remembrance in the cultures of Latino people around the world. At the exhibit, you’ll learn about this rich cultural event, which is a blend of Aztec traditions of remembering the dead and the Catholic tradition of celebration of All Saints Day and All Souls Day tradition brought by the Spanish conquistadors. We invite all of our Valley's cultures to share their traditions in honoring the lives of those who have died. This includes relatives, friends, special heroes, and especially the Angelitos (the little children). Our goal is to provide a shared cultural experience for our citizens and to bring people to downtown Yakima.
