Celebrate the Day of the Dead by the Waterfront

,

Celebrate Mexican culture with Día de los Muertos—The Day of the Dead. The festival, which also has alternatives in other cultures, started as a way for families and friends to come together to remember and pray for their loved ones who have passed away.

The Harbourfront Centre will host the event on November 5-6 and is free to attend. It features face painting to get into the spirit of the Day of the Dead, performances from Latin bands, puppet shows and altars of remembrance.

The Day of the Dead has become a global tradition and in places like Toronto, which celebrates its diversity, it’s a great chance to experience different cultures by the Waterfront.
