Dia de los Muertos Celebration on Bainbridge Island
October 28 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
The Bainbridge Island Museum of Arts’ 8th Annual Dia de los Muertos celebration is upon us! On Saturday, October 28th from 11am-2pm, the museum will be transformed into a memorable, beautiful, and rich with cultural event.
The day will start out with an opening procession of butterfly-costumed kids (decorate your wings Oct 28 starting at 9am), leading guests down a flower path into a museum humming with music, art and activity. Centered around a traditional ofrenda, a colorful, multi-paneled shrine created by artist Araceli Cruz, guests are encouraged to add their own mementos and stories honoring loved ones who’ve passed on.
Enjoy samples of champurrado (traditional Mexican hot chocolate) and pan de muerto, make-and-take art activities, and strolling musicians sharing traditional Mexican folk songs.
