When: Sat., Nov. 1, 1-9 p.m. 2014
Day of the Dead festivities only piqued your curiosity in the past, now is the year to start celebrating. Join Nickel Plate Arts as we deck the halls with locally crafted calaveras (decorated skulls) and altars, and in Mexican tradition, pay respect to those who have gone before us. Just $5 gets visitors in the door for official Day of the Dead festivities.
Make your own piñata or wearable mask with easy-to-follow instruction (1-8 p.m.). Let local artist Jan Snyder use your handsome mug as her canvas for face painting (1-3 p.m. and 6-8 p.m.). Catch masterful storyteller Dwight Gallian as he shares ghost stories, hear live music from Willoughby Sprig, and take a whack at a piñata. Bring a little cash for fall treats, including Day of the Dead cupcakes from Sweet Bailey's Cakes, homemade tamales by Texy Mexy, local wine and beer, soft drinks and winter warmers.
