Live mariachi music helps to make this a joyful event designed to remember and welcome back the spirits of loved ones. Decorate a sugar skull, make papel picado (cut-paper banners) and other artwork, and write a message to place upon the Día de los Muertos altar. View the community altar artwork by students from the Amigos School in Cambridge.
