We are just two weeks away from Casa Tina’s Annual Celebration of Day Of The Dead or “Dia De Los Muertos”. A Mexican tradition to pay homage to those whom have passed. A celebration typically taking three days beginning November 1st with food, drinks, parties and activities that the deceased enjoyed. In Latin tradition the dead is celebrated for the life they had and it would be considered an insult to mourn and express sadness.
In Mexican folklore it is said that during Dia De Los Muertos the dead are awakened from their eternal sleep and join the celebrations with their loved ones. Streets decorated with calacas and calaveras(skeletons and skulls) and storefronts displaying the alters of the deceased. This is a most interesting and most colorful event of the year you sure wouldn’t want to miss. For more information for this event checkout our events calendar on our Agenda page.
Day Of The Dead in Dunedin will be held on Saturday October 29th 2016.
