| October 31, 2018
Rams Head

As part of the ancient Mexican tradition of honoring the dead with festivals and lively celebrations, the City of Annapolis and Center of Help will host the first annual Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) on Friday, November 2, from 5 p.m. to midnight in the Annapolis Design District, along Edgewood and Margaret Avenues. The District is located just off West Street and Chinquapin Round Road.

On The Day of the Dead, the ancient pre-Columbian cultures believed deceased loved ones awoke from their eternal sleep to celebrate and reunite with families on November 2. Next Friday’s event features the familiar symbol of the festival – the calacas or Calaveras (skeletons and skulls) in joyous expressions.
