Day of the Dead
The 100 Men Hall celebrates Day of the Dead (All Souls Day) on November 2, 2019 from 4PM to 9PM with 20 altars honoring the souls of all good who have passed away, along with music by a mariachi band and DJ plus tamales!
Unlike Halloween, Day of the Dead is not meant to be a sad or frightening holiday, but an uplifting time to remember loved ones or others who have died. Day of the Dead is a sacred day, in which we figuratively welcome back the memory and the souls of those departed.
In keeping with the deep musical heritage of the 100 Men D.B.A. Hall, what could be more perfect than to celebrate both loved ones and beloved musicians by creating your own personal altar and joining us at the Hall for Dia de los Muertos, Saturday, November 2, 2019!
4PM – altar viewing
5PM – mariachi band
6PM – judging
7PM – DJ and tamales
Traditional altars are a fusion of both religions and cultures, with offerings of food, beverages and prized possessions displayed.
