Originating in Mexico, Día de los Muertos, also known as Day of the Dead is a 3000-year-old ritual. It is a two-day festival for family and friends to come together to celebrate and honour their deceased loved ones. The belief is that at midnight on October 31, the spirits of loved ones can come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them.
One of the biggest traditions of the festival is creating an offering of the favourite foods of the deceased. The key purpose of this custom is a reminder of good memories of loved ones gone.
Join us at the centre to celebrate the lives of our loved ones. Bring a photo of your child or sibling to pin up on garlands, a plate of their favourite food, share stories of their lives, enjoy a glass of Sangria and experience a different cultures way of honouring their loved ones.
All family and friends welcome!
