As a young Mexican-American girl growing up in Southern California, I'd never heard of Dia de los Muertos until I moved to East L.A to attend college. I discovered a very vibrant celebration and community and was instantly drawn to it. Now that I'm a mama to six kids, I've discovered many ways to make it a family affair.
We've been celebrating Dia de los Muertos for several years and some of our favorite aspects of this holiday is the creativity — we love the brightly colored papel picado, the art, the handmade touches, the music, the danzantes and the drama the evening of November second always seems to bring with it.
As Halloween and Day of the Dead festivities begin, I'll be heading over to L.A Live to experience Skeletown Square with Target for a #FrightfulFiesta.
Target has invited all of the mummies and catrinas, ghosts and skeletons for a #FrightfulFiesta at L.A. LIVE! Come dressed up with your whole family to Skeletown Square, a free spooktacular to celebrate your Día de los Muertos and Halloween traditions. There will be face painting, festive games for prizes, a huge altar of the dead and a spooktastic spectacular in our cemetery.
I'm looking forward to a change of scenery on Halloween this year, so we'll be hanging out in L.A and experiencing pumpkin decorating, making sugar skulls, face painting, trick-or-treating and carnival games for my whole family to enjoy. Sounds like fun, amirite?
