Sunday, October 25, 2015
1:00-2:30 p.m.Get creative with a hands-on art activity celebrating Día de los Muertos and hosted by ofrenda artist Paco Garcia. See “20th Annual Community Ofrenda,” above.
2:30-4:00 p.m.Local author and poet Richard Rios once again gathers poets and musicians to celebrate the community tradition of Flor y Canto or “Flower and Song.” This event celebrates the beauty and richness of Mexican and indigenous culture through poetry, music and dance. The phrase “flor y canto” is a rough Spanish translation for what the Aztecs referred to as art and poetry - an apt comparison to the pleasure the arts bring into our lives. This year’s perfomers will present expressions from the traditional to the contemporary. Delicious pan dulce and hot chocolate will be served.
