Participate in Our Community Altar
On Día de los Muertos, the dead are also a part of the community, being invited to share celebrations with their loved ones. Families create ofrendas (offerings) to honor their departed family members. These altars are decorated with bright yellow marigold flowers, photos of the departed, and the favorite foods and drinks of the one being honored. The offerings are believed to encourage visits from the land of the dead as the departed souls hear their prayers, smell their foods and join in the celebrations! Bring an offering or photo that you’d like to be included in Pelham Art Center’s window display for Day of the Dead! **
**Our community altar is on display until Tuesday, November 2nd. Any offering items you’d like returned should be labeled with your name, e-mail and phone number, and picked up no later than Saturday, November 6th.
