Altars & Performances
Los Hermanos Familia believes that cultural awareness through art helps to build confidence and understanding of culture. We will be modifying our event and will be holding a special event on Thursday, October 29, 2020.
Also, please join us for the VIRTUAL 9th Día de Los Muertos Celebración presented by Los Hermanos Familia, it will be posted Sunday, November 1, 2020. The event will display photos of past events including altars, online activities for the kids that offer cultural understanding, as well as performances videos by local performers – traditional and modern.
In 2015 and 2016, the event was held downtown. Almost 3,000 individuals attended the event and 24 vendors connected with the crowd. Eleven very talented cake decorators competed in the cake-off. Six cars were showcased in the Día de Los Muertos best-decorated car competition, and almost 50 altars were on exhibit. The children’s area gave families an appreciation and understanding of the observance through art projects. Last year the event was moved to the Science Spectrum to offer a more family-oriented event. Overall, the event was deemed a total success.
