Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a traditional Mexican and Central American celebration of ancient origin. Families visit the cemetery, or prepare "ofrendas" or "altars" at home, in remembrance of their deceased loved ones, and throw parties in their honor. Some people dress up or get elaborate face makeup.
Come to the Emporium to experience our annual Day of the Dead celebration, sponsored by HoLa, Hora Latina. Vote for your favorite altar, decorate sugar skulls, and participate in the Day of the Dead costume contest. There will also be pan de muerto, traditional hot chocolate, face painting, and more! Sugar skulls will also be available for purchase.
