Dia de Los Muertos Celebration 2015

posted on

The second annual Dia del los Muertos celebration took place on Thursday, October 29th. The cafeteria was decorated in festive colors with multicolored Papel Picado banners and balloons. All classes/grade levels created colorful, authentic altars. Entertainment provided by the Sal Avila Trio and taco's were served by Sabor. Approximately 200 people attended. Parents and families donated a wide variety of baked goods for the bake sale. Popcorn was also sold. Attendees played loteria, decorated a cavelera (skull), and had their faces painted. There was also a hand-made photo face cut-out of skeletons for students and families to take their picture.
