Altars are constructed at grave sites or in homes with food, beverages and other items once owned or appreciated by the deceased. It is believed that the spirits of the dead return to be with family and friends.
On November 2, the community altar will be on display at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center, along with many activities and events, including traditional Mexican food, music, dance ceremonies, games and paper flower making/sugar skull decorating for kids. Bring the whole family to experience this one-of-a-kind celebration of Mexican heritage and culture here in Utah.
