The Escondido Public Library presents a Dia de los Muertos/ Day of the Dead celebration on Thursday, November 1, 2012 at 3:30 PM in the Children’s Room.  Learn about the history, the stories, and the crafts of Mexico in honoring our loved ones who have passed.

Children ages 4-12 years of age will create and decorate sugar skulls and follow the Mexican traditions of placing flowers, mementos and pan dulce on an altar.  Please bring photos or mementos of your loved ones to share in celebrating Dia de los Muertos.

This program is made possible by the generous support of the Friends of the Escondido Public Library. This event is free and open to the public.  Please come early, as supplies and seating are limited. The Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street in downtown Escondido.
