Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead is a Mexican tradition to honor and celebrate the lives of the dearly departed. You can bet that in Mexico- the streets and cemeteries are flooded with decorations and parades are on going. It is believed that the spirits of the dead visit their families from October 31 to November 2.
To get in the spirit, check out the Dia De Los Muertos at the Denver Botanic Gardens for an authentic celebration and to learn more about the history of the holiday. The Gardens have been celebrating the cultural tradition for three years. The activities include a sugar skull workshop and a costume contest—just in case you weren’t able to make it out for Halloween! The event runs from 3-8.
