Come celebrate your memories, and make new ones, with our fifth annual salute to the fiery chile and decadent chocolate. Dozens of food and craft vendors will fill the grounds and personal ofrendas (altars) from local artists and schools pay homage to the enduring borderland traditions of Día de los Muertos and a community altar invites guests to leave recuerdos (remembrances) of lost loved ones. There will be musical entertainment with a Latin beat from the Rafael Moreno Quartet, Entre Peruanos, Jovert Steel Drum Band, Mariachi Aztlán and Michael Salerno; sugar skull crafts with Jennifer Eschedor; and Day of the Dead-themed face painting by Maddy (and children’s activities on Saturday).
