Community Ofrenda supported by Siete Family Foods
Ofrendas are often the most recognized symbol of Dia de losMuertos. These temporary altars are created to guide and welcome spirits back to the land of the living. Local Tejana florist, Yliana Lara will transform the Moody Amphitheater stage into a community “ofrenda,” or altar, where visitors are invited to place images and decorations that honor their families and friends who have passed.
Alebrije Altar supported by Love, Tito’s
Animals play an important role in many Mexican traditions, including Día de los Muertos. “Alebrijes” are spirit guides are represented in Mexican folk art as vibrant, fantastical creatures that often resemble dragons, lizards and other mystical creatures. Inspired by the spirit of DogJo, Tito’s Handmade Vodka invites visitors to remember their own beloved companions on a special pet altar.
