Celebrated around the world, Mexico’s holiday Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) honors the lives of our loved ones, past and present. The holiday also provides opportunities for kids to make maracas, create paper flowers, carve jack o’lanterns, and more. With the exception of pumpkins, LCVA will supply everything you’ll need, from snacks to supplies to assistants.

Día de los Muertos is part of a series of Free Family Workshops offered by LCVA. Workshops are designed to bring the family together in an enriching and creative environment to celebrate annual events throughout the year.
