Third Annual Día de Muertos, Saturday, November 2, 2019

(Rancho Dominguez, CA)—The Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum will celebrate its Third Annual Día de Muertos/Day of the Dead event. Rooted in Mexican tradition, Día de Muertos is a festive time of remembrance in which families decorate the tombs of deceased relatives and install memorial ofrendas/altars where special offerings are laid out that would be appealing and comforting to the returning souls. Ofrendas–set up on a tabletop or on boxes of various sizes – include everything from candles, Pan de Muerto/sugar-coated bread to photographs, water glasses, musical instruments and other gifts.

The Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum is pleased to provide a venue for the public to celebrate its ancestors and loved ones that have passed on. A desire to reconnect with those who have gone before us is a natural and admirable tradition.

Commemorating the event, on Saturday, November 2, 2019 from 10:00am to 4:00pm, the public is invited to view ofrendas honoring the dead, live performances by Semillitas Preschool’s Aztec Dancers, Ballet Folklorico Alma de Oro de Carson and Mariachi Academy of Carson; in addition, Mexican cuisine, arts and crafts will be available for purchase.

The public is invited to attend the free event and is encouraged to take a tour of the Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum.

The Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum is Located at 18127 South Alameda Street, Rancho Dominguez, CA 90220.
