Save the date, November 1 5-9pm for the annual Dia de los Muertos // Day of the Dead Festival. A colorful and lively celebration of life steeped in the traditions of Mexico, and parts of Central and South America. The festival includes traditional dance, music, crafts and food available for purchase. A candlelight parade leads guests to an exhibition of altars in the Old Episcopal Burying Ground. New to the festival this year, we welcome our friends from the Lexington Children’s Theatre with excerpts from the original play, la ofrenda, by Jose Casas.
There’s lots to do and see at the Living Arts & Science Center. We hope you’ll visit soon.
