Día De Los Muertos Celebration

A Celebration of Community & Family
Día de los Muertos is a Latin American custom celebrating the lives of the deceased with food, drink, parties, and activities the dead enjoyed in life. It recognizes death as a natural part of the human experience, beginning with birth, childhood, and growing up to become a contributing member of the community. On Día de los Muertos, the dead are also a part of the community, awakened from their eternal sleep to share celebrations with their loved ones.
Hosted by The Legacy Keepers of McKinney, the Día de los Muertos Celebration will include music, food, crafts, arts and education.
- Get in the spirit by dressing for the occasion or be a part of the costume contest.
- A special ofrenda will be on display in the center of the park.
- Bring a picture or something special from your loved one who has passed and join us for a special procession at the end of the evening.
