Con Edison Family Day: Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead
Join us as we celebrate this Latin American tradition at the Morris-Jumel Mansion. Today, the neighborhood of Washington Heights is home to many families who came to New York City from places like Mexico, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, and other countries from Central and South America who brought their traditions with them. This second Saturday, families can make paper sugar skulls and other crafts and help to create a Day of The Dead altar, or ofrenda, by leaving notes or gifts for their ancestors or loved ones. Participants are invited to bring a copy of a photograph of someone they wish to honor with their ofrenda.
Free with registration. Maximum of four tickets per family.
