Days of the Dead celebration – Nov. 2-6

The Anthropos student organization is hosting its annual Days of the Dead celebration.

From Nov. 2-6 an altar will be on display in the lobby of Gaige Hall. Anthropos students will be selling sugar skulls and jewelry. Everyone is invited to view and add to the altar.

On Nov. 4, from 12:30-2 p.m., the official dedication of the altar will take place. This year’s altar is in honor of and dedicated to the more than 400 women and girls whose murders remain unsolved in Ciudad Juarez. There will be music, a piñata and free food – tamales, champurrado (hot chocolate) and pan de muerto (bread of the dead).

This event is free and open to the RIC community.
