Community comes together for Dia de los Muertos celebrations

After dispensing with spooky festivities, this season brings a more heartfelt celebration with Dia de los Muertos.

Usually recognized across a number of days (Oct. 31 to Nov. 2), the Day of the Dead is a time to celebrate cherished loved ones who have died. Gathering with family and friends, people build ofrendas, also called altares (altars), festooned with items — food, drinks, photos, mementos, etc. — that lovingly commemorate the honoree.
