Join the Bilingual Birdies Band for a special Día de Muertos concert celebration in Spanish and English. Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) has been an important celebration in Mexico since pre-Hispanic times. The tradition is rooted in the native Mexican belief that life on earth is a preparation for the next world and of the importance of maintaining a strong relationship to the dead. Families are encouraged to bring photos of lost loved ones and meaningful offerings to add to a community altar. Together we’ll have a joyous afternoon honoring their memories through live music, dance, puppetry, a fun art project, and some special surprises. Little ones will get to learn new words in Spanish and be a part of an epic dance party!
