2016 Day of the Dead Party: Aztec Dance, Craft & Street Decorating | Berkeley
South Berkeley Farmers’ Market | 63rd and Adeline Street, Berkeley, CA
Honor passed loved ones and ancestors at the annual Dia de los Muertos celebration featuring a number of hands-on activities for the whole family on Tuesday, October 25, 2016.
It’s transition time at the farmers’ markets. Stone fruit and salads of summer are giving way to soup and citrus season. It is also the season of Dia de los Muertos and Halloween, a time that celebrates the transitions of life to death and the relationship between. It is said that at this time the worlds of the living and the worlds of the dead are in closest proximity.
Experience local Aztec dance troupe Cuauhtli Mitotiani Mexica’s powerful annual community blessing and hear their report back from Standing Rock.
Bring your family and something for the altar, lovingly built by Tamales la Oaxaqueña’s Rosa Olivia.
