Day of the Dead Celebration
November 3, 2018
This is a wonderful, yearly celebration in Murphys. There will be sugar skulls, face painting, and live music. Some businesses will feature altars that celebrate the lives of the dead but who are still with us in spirit. There will be a Catrina and Catrin Dress Contest at 4:30 pm Saturday afternoon in the Park followed by a Storyteller in the Park. Mexican hot chocolate and pan de muertos will be available for purchase after the ceremony.
The celebration in the Park will include traditional entertainment beginning at 1 pm featuring folklorico dancers, musicians, food and drinks for sale and authentic craft vendors. Purchases of food will benefit the Murphys Community Club which is responsible for maintaining and improving our lovely park along the creek. This year the folklorico dancers will again offer dancing lessons in the Native Sons Hall if space is available.
In case of rain, all park activities will be held in the Native Sons Hall on Main Street.
Marisolio is one of the sponsors for this event.
