We’re also excited to have Mexican performer Karina Salgado back this year as our MC and host for the night! She will be delivering a very unique performance during the night.
Finally we have, as always, a traditional OFRENDA (“altar”) which is always a part of Day of the Dead Celebrations in Mexico and around the World.
Get your face painted and learn a little about how vast and deep Hispanic culture is – eat some “Pan De Muertos” and reflect on what’s important as we mark the Mexican tradition of the Day of the Dead by enjoying the best in life!
