You’re invited to the Day of the Dead celebration at the Peabody Museum. Bring your camera for new activities this year! Have your face painted, make some dress-up crafts and calaca (skull) masks, and then pose for pictures of yourself in front of the holiday backdrop and with costumed Catrinas/Catrins (elegant skeletons). View the special altars and decorations, leave messages for your departed loved ones, and enjoy festive music. Decorate and take home a sugar skull and have some light snacks. Recommended for ages 5 and up accompanied by an adult.
