Celebrating El Dia De Los Muertos @ Brownsville Heritage Museum Vezetti Room  | Brownsville | Texas | United States

In celebration of Dia de Los Muertos, the Brownsville Historical Association, in partnership with the Consul of Mexico at Brownsville, invite you to explore a community exhibition of an ofrenda altar. This year’s theme, Remember Me, reflects on the customs of Dia De Los Muertos (the Day of the Dead). The tradition is not concentrating on the stereotypical ideologies, but the symbolisms and the essence of rejoicing in life and not fearing death. To celebrate and pay tribute to our loved ones who have passed, join us in providing offerings to the colorfully decorated altar with traditional items like calaveras (sugar skulls), cempazuchitl’s (marigolds), papel picado, foods, and personal items, to welcome the returning spirits during this holiday.
