Come celebrate “Día de Muertos”: Fiesta Sunday, Nov. 4th

Join us at Tierra on Sunday, November 4th from 4:00-6:00pm and experience one of the most fascinating of Mexican holiday traditions - “Día de los Muertos”!

We’ll be treated to a special Latin American guitar recital by our school director as we contemplate the traditional altar, commemorating those who have passed with a beautiful ofrenda or “offering”.  We invite you to bring a photo of a deceased loved or admired one to add to the altar.

Come enjoy a delicious potluck meal, with traditional treats including tamales, pan de muerto, and atole - we encourage you to bring a dish or beverage to share.
