In my last post I took the liberty on sharing the history of the Mexican celebration known as Dia De Los Muertos and when I was done, I thought that was a good educational piece. After a while it dawned on me that I forgot to include the fun part. As they say business in the front and party in the back... so here is the info on the party courtesy of downtownboise.org

 

The Idaho State Museum is proud to partner with JUMP and the Hispanic community to commemorate this significant event with a weekend of activities and events.

Join the Museum Saturday November 2nd from 10am-5pm for pan de Muerto from Campos Market, face painting, and hot chocolate. Enjoy a screening of Disney Pixar’s Coco at 10:30 AM (English with Spanish subtitles) and at 2:00 PM (Spanish with English subtitles).

All activities are included in the regular admission price of the Museum.

 

While visiting the Museum visitors will also be able to see a pop-up on Mariachi in Idaho and find some Dia de Muertos items in the M Store.

Visitors can participate in a processional parade from the Idaho State Museum to JUMP at 5pm Saturday November 2nd to continue the weekends events with panel discussions covering topics like Hispanic culture in Idaho and historic to contemporary observances of Dia de Muertos.
