The dead come to life at LA Plaza with activities that pay homage to the dead through music, dance, and hands-on garden, culinary and craft workshops.
Families will be entertained by folklorico performances by La Puente-based Ballet Folklorico «Y Arrìba Mèxico» and Santa Monica’s @cCabeza De Vaca Cultura Dance School, as well as a piece by the Los Angeles Theatre Academy that is inspired by the Day of the Dead celebration.
Children and adults can participate in various workshops, including decorating Pan de Muerto (the traditional Day of the Dead bread), making and coloring a Mexican skull (calavera) mask, and creating a Día de los Muertos shrine to honor the deceased.
Mama’s Tamales will sell treats like made-from-scratch tamales!
