2nd Annual “Souls of the City” Activities in Old Sacramento Culminate With Celebration on November 1
In honor of “Day of the Dead” activities celebrated each year in Mexico and in major cities around the world, Sol Collective and the Historic Old Sacramento Foundation have teamed up to present a series of 2nd Annual Dia De Los Muertos/“Souls of the City” events and activities in Old Sacramento that take place throughout October and culminate on November 1, 2013. The annual tradition -- a national holiday in Mexico – is showcased by friends and families building elaborate altars to honor loved ones who have died then gathering in remembrance and celebration.
A series of fun pop up art labs and special activities will be held in October that showcase the traditions and/or demonstrate how to create some of the special items used in “Day of the Dead” celebrations. A schedule of the free workshops and special activities follows:
