Community Ofrenda para Día de los Muertos
November 1, 2023
Discovery Green® invites visitors to remember loved ones at the Community Ofrenda para Día de los Muertos
Wednesday, Nov. 1; 6 – 10 p.m.
Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a Mexican holiday where families and friends gather to celebrate, remember and prepare special foods in honor of those who are no longer living. Participants will often paint their faces to look like a skull.
Discovery Green has commissioned Houston artist Angel Quesada to build a community ofrenda, or altar, to help visitors remember their loved ones during Día de los Muertos. Visitors are invited to place images or recuerdos of their loved ones on the community altar. (Copies of photos only. Please do not bring anything irreplaceable.)
Violinist Queen Angelina will also perform from 7:30 – 8:30 pm
