DAY OF THE DEAD COMMUNITY ALTAR

Displayed until November 2

Join us! and be a part of our new tradition!

“To remember is to live again”, that is what the altar reminds us, that we are always close to our loved ones and helps us celebrate the life of those who have passed.

Come to the library to build this offering, make “papel picado” and “Flor de Cempasúchil” with tissue paper, place a photo of your loved one and learn the meaning of each element related to this day.

You can still bring your offering and pictures any day until November 2.

If you are interested, please reach out to
Cricket Pylman at 970.479.2179 or CPylman@vailgov.com
