Dia de los Muertos Celebration
Join us today from 3:30 - 6:30 p.m. by visiting the ofrendas in the community!
One22 Resource Center has joined with 10 local social service and arts organizations for a community-wide Día de Los Muertos celebration.
Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a festive multi-day holiday, originating in Mexico, during which family and friends gather to joyfully remember friends and family members who have died. One favorite Día de los Muertos tradition is the creation of ofrendas (home altars) with the favorite food and beverages of the departed.
On Tuesday, November 2, each partnering nonprofit will install a unique ofrenda outside their offices around Jackson, and the community is invited to join in the celebration by downloading this map and BINGO card.
Visitors stamp their BINGO cards at each ofrenda site, returning completed cards to One22’s Jackson Cupboard (245 North Glenwood) for a chance to win fabulous prizes!
