The Simi Valley Historical Society is inviting everyone to attend their 5th annual Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festival.  This event will take place on Sunday, October 27, 2019 from 2PM - 7PM, at Strathearn Historical Park & Museum.

Día de los Muertos is traditionally a three day celebration running from October 31st to November 2nd.  It is a celebration where deceased loved ones are remembered and revered. Families build altars in their homes commemorating lost loved ones and celebrate their lives.

These days, Day of the Dead altars are also created in libraries, museums and classrooms in both Mexico and the United States, as a way of honoring Mexican traditions and encouraging cross-cultural understanding.

The October 27th festival will feature live music, performances, storytelling, craft vendors, crafts for all ages, face painting, food vendors and more.

Building a  Día de los Muertos altar is an important part of celebrating Mexico's most famous holiday. They can be relatively simple as one might display photographs and mementos that reflect their loved ones character and personality; what matters is the act of honoring and remembering them.

Strathearn Park is at 137 Strathearn Place (behind the Madera Target store).  Tickets are available online (recommended) at svhs.ticketleap.com/ddlm2018/dates/Oct-28-2018_at_0200PM and at the gate: $7 Adults, $5 Kids age 5-12.  For additional information call 805-526-6453
