Oakland Museum Day of the Dead Celebration
The Oakland Museum rules, so logic would tell you that anything they do or say also rules. Therefore, you should go to this:
Join us as the whole Museum comes alive with the spirit and tradition of Days of the Dead. Explore the exhibition VIVO: Days of the Dead 2010 in the Art Galleries and enjoy dance by Besh Beni and Chan Kahal, music by SonRisas and Ixim Tinamit, and ceremonia with Ernesto Olmos. Watch demonstrations of traditional Meso-American arts and foods, and buy local Days of the Dead merchandise for your home altar from our mercado. Make your own masks, dancing calaveras, and tin ornaments. Local food vendors will sell tasty tacos, tamales, and vegetarian Mexican food.
My copy/pasting is due to my being in Portland and having to run outside before it starts raining, and also my current state of exhaustion. Deal.
Anyway, take an East Bay Dia tomorrow and visit the Oakland Museum for some cultural good times!
