Come embrace life, death, family, community, and the art of ritual by participating in this year's Mendocino Coast Day of the Dead Celebration.
This year we will be scaling back on the events that we organize. We have great volunteers helping out, but monetarily we have reached a limit using our own resources. We will again be sponsoring Altar Hall (at Fort Bragg Town Hall) Nov 2-3, a sugar skull decorating class, and providing a schedule of other events, such as another raffle for a cemetery plot, a paper flower making class, and traditional meals and classes.
Our goal is to provide awareness and education of the meaningful traditions of Dia de los Muertos festivities by sponsoring, promoting and sharing activities that celebrate this holiday. Our events are mostly free to the community or support local non-profit organizations.
Now in its 6th year, this month long series of countywide events serves to honor the memories of those who have passed, while reminding us of how vibrant and creative we are as a community. Check out our Facebook page Mendocino Day of the Dead Festival.
The 2012 schedule (scroll down for a calendar) is pretty much confirmed. Some of the events to enjoy will include traditional meals, flower making classes, gallery shows and a raffle to win a cemetery plot (there's still time to get your tickets call 937-2010.
