Dia de los Muertos Celebration 2017

Dia de los Muertos Celebration 2017Artes de las Rosas Cultural Center is hosting another year’s Dia de los Muertos Celebration for Fort Worth, Texas.  Día de los Muertos is a very happy Mexican-American holiday that celebrates loved ones who have passed on. According to the traditional folklore, the gates of Heaven are opened at midnight on October 31st allowing the spirits of the deceased to reunite with their living loved ones for an entire day, November 1st. Scholars trace it back to a similar Aztec holiday. The living create altars beautifully adorned with flowers, typically marigolds, mounds of fruit, food, drinks, hot cocoa, large pastries called pan de muerto, and candles. The celebration in Fort Worth attracts performers and artisans from all over North Texas. A high-energy drum and puppet procession starts the event and marches through Main Street starting at Marine Park and ending at the Mercado Plaza. The event features music, face painting, food, drinks, pan de muerto, and plenty of dancing! Dancing like ballet folklorico and mariachi music will be featured prominently. There will be games and children’s activities. Many artisans will be selling handcrafted fine art as well as folk art. The Rose Marine Theater will be open to check out the works by local and international Latino artists. There will also be a free screening of the feature film, The Book of Life, along with free screenings of short films. Because the holiday itself lands during the week, the celebration will be held this weekend, October 27th and 28th.
