18th Annual

Sherman Heights

Dia de los Muertos Celebration

ABOUT SHERMAN HEIGHTS DIA DE LOS MUERTOS
—————————–
“IN MEXICO WE DECORATE THE GRAVEYARD.

IN SHERMAN HEIGHTS WE DECORATE THE NEIGHBORHOOD.”

This beautiful celebration started in 1994 when some residents asked the Community Center if they could honor their loved ones by creating altars and offerings to remember them by.

The Sherman Heights Community Center is a place to embrace and continue our Mexican traditions for the generations to come.

In 2001 the Sherman Heights Neighborhood Cultural Council started organizing the outdoor altars and creating offerings in front of historic houses in collaboration with local artists and residents.

El Día de los Muertos

is a very spiritual event, a time to pause, to think back and remember that none of us will live forever. If we do it right, we will leave behind loved ones who will think of us often and tell about the love and good times we shared.
