History for Half Pints: Day of the Dead

  • HAHS Museum of History & Culture 22380 Foothill Blvd Hayward, CA, 94541 (map)

Traditional Día de los Muertos altars have many components that are used to reflect and celebrate the lives of loved ones who have passed; a photo of who is being commemorated, candles to light the way for those spirits visiting during the celebration, and vibrantly colored sugar skulls. Kids of all ages are welcome to decorate their own sugar skulls to add to their at home altars. Funding generously provided by Berty Nebenzahl and Ruth Talley.
