This Saturday is Dia De Los Muertos!

This year we are bringing to attention two events that are happening on opposite sides of the Valley, one in Palm Springs and one in Coachella. Both are free, and invite the whole family to come out and enjoy the festivities.

What is Day of the Dead??:

Day of the Dead is a time of celebration and remembrance. On this day families gather to tell stories, honor their heritage and commemorate loved ones who have passed away. Through vivid imagery, storytelling and traditions, death is recognized as a continuation of life.

¿Qué es el Día de los Muertos?
El Día de los Muertos es un tiempo para celebrar y recordar. Durante este día familias enteras se reúnen para contra historias, honrar su cultura, y conmemorar a los seres queridos que han fallecido. Por medio de imágenes, narrativas y tradiciones vívidas, la muerte es reconocida como una continuación de la vida.
