El Dia de los Muertos Petaluma Opening Ceremony
October 1 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
The community is invited to the 2017 El Dia de los Muertos Petaluma Opening Ceremony and Health Fair. Enjoy live music, Ballet Folklorico de Petaluma Paquiyollotzin, Aztec dancers, Zumba, and learn about wellness and social justice organizations.
The month-long observance honoring the deceased with lively celebrations is a cross-cultural sharing between the Latino and Anglo communities in Petaluma’s proudly diverse population. Ofrendas or altars are placed throughout downtown for the month of October and weekly events showcase traditional Latino music, dance and food. The celebration culminates in the dramatic Candlelight Procession with Giant Puppets on October 28th.
