Dia de los Muertos: Sunday in the Science Center

October 29, 2010


Remember your loved ones and get a taste of Mexican culture Sunday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Science Center Atrium. Several student groups and college departments are hosting a celebration for Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. 

Come to Beloit College's celebration to:

  • Buy a meal from the Tacos Gonzalez truck (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.)
  • Taste Pan de Muerto (bread of the dead) and other Mexican pastries.
  • Listen to Trio Alma Latina, a Mariachi trio from Milwaukee (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.)
  • Help decorate the altars. Bring a photo of a person you love who has passed on or something you associate with that person, such as his/her favorite fruit or soft drink.  (NOTE: You may not get your contribution back after the event, so PLEASE don’t bring anything with which you can’t part.)
  • Assist students in making paper flowers, papel picado (perforated paper), and sugar skulls. Bring the kids!
