(Rancho Dominguez, CA)—The Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum in collaboration with Semillitas Learning Community will celebrate its 6th Annual Dia de Muertos/Day of the Dead event. Rooted in Mexican tradition, Dia 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, Saturday November 5, 2022 from 11:00am to 4:00pm, the public is invited to view ofrendas honoring the dead, live performances, Mexican cuisine, and shop from local artisans. This event is a free, family-friendly event. Please note that this event will be conducted under strict health and safety protocols associated with COVID-19.
The Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum is Located at 18127 South Alameda Street, Rancho Dominguez, CA 90220.
