Dia de los Muertos

Day of the Dead/Día de los Muertos is a holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures.

The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. 

La Casa’s Dia de los Muertos celebration is an event where different registered student organizations can make their own altar for display at our event on Friday, Oct. 28, 2016 at the University YMCA- Latzer Hall.

Enjoy activity tables which include Papel Picado, Face Painting, and Sugar Skull Decorating. During our main event we invite the campus and surrounding community to come and enjoy music by DJ Ill Noize, a performance by Los Concheros, and an informative presentation on the history of the event by Arte Ambulante from the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago.
