Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is not a Mexican version of Halloween. Though related, the two annual events differ greatly in traditions and tone. Whereas Halloween is a dark night of terror and mischief, Day of the Dead festivities is an explosion of colour and life-affirming joy. Sure, the theme is death, but the point is to demonstrate love and respect for deceased family members. In towns and cities throughout Mexico, people wear makeup and costumes, hold parades and parties, sing and dance, and make offerings to lost loved ones. We have a family friendly program from 4 pm to 9 pm and then an after party for those that like to party the Mexican way!
