The 27th annual Dia de los Muertos Expo was held Saturday at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church on East Brundage Lane. The long-held Mexican tradition, also known as Day of the Dead, is an opportunity for people to pay homage to deceased loved ones by gathering with family and friends. Saturday’s celebration — the longest running of its kind locally — provided altars, arts, crafts, Mexican food vendors, music, costumes and face painting. A family-friendly environment was in store, with free admission and all proceeds benefiting the construction of a new church shrine.
