Día de Los Muertos

La Gran Plaza de Fort Worth will celebrate the departed with a "Día de Los Muertos" or "Day of the Dead" event. This special ceremony will feature religious blessings of decorated altars with offerings and a serenade of songs dedicated to the departed.

Day of the Dead (Dia De Los Muertos) is a two-day holiday that reunites the living and dead. Families create ofrendas (Offerings) to honor their departed family members that have passed. These altars are decorated with bright yellow marigold flowers, photos of the departed, and the favorite foods and drinks of the one being honored. The offerings are believed to encourage visits from the land of the dead as the departed souls hear their prayers, smell their foods and join in the celebrations!

The event will begin at 2 p.m. and will be held at the Tricolor Auto Stage.
