  9. Día de Muertos/Day of the Dead

    October 23, 2021, 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM @

    Bowen Park

    The Waukegan Park District and Academia Cultural Xilotl are partnering to celebrate Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) with Sugar Skull Workshops and a community celebration. With origins in Mexico and celebrated throughout Latin American, Día de Muertos is a celebration of the lives of the deceased. Families create ofrendas (offerings) to honor family members that have passed away. These altars are decorated with bright flowers, calaveras (skulls), photos, foods, drinks, and items to honor the departed loved ones. Día de Muertos is not the “Mexican Halloween” like it is sometimes mistaken to be because of the timing of the year. The commemoration of Día de Muertos will culminate with a free community celebration on Saturday, October 23 from 12pm to 5pm at the Jack Benny Center for the Arts and Jane Addams Center. The event will feature altar exhibits, art vendors, food, music, dance presentations, and sugar skull workshops.

Join them as they rip into and lampoon the comedies, tragedies, and history plays all in one night.
