Día de los Muertos, a Mexican culture holiday celebrated on the 1st and 2nd of November where families welcome back the souls of their deceased relatives, is also known as the Day of the Dead.
The holiday originated in contemporary Mexico 3,000 years ago, and is observed all over the world. On the Day of the Dead, it is believed that the border between the spirit and the real world dissolve, and souls of the dead return to visit their loved ones.
In honor of the holiday, on Sunday, October 24, 2021, Inglewood Park Cemetery will be hosting their annual Día de los Muertos celebration, but this year the festivities will be converted into a drive-thru experience.
At the event, families will learn about and partake in Día de los Muertos traditions while in a pandemic-safe environment. The day will feature arts and crafts, remembrance trees, photo opportunities, a community alter paying tribute to the iconic Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, and more. The celebration will kick off at Noon.
