Celebrating Day of the Dead Happens in Many Different Ways in San Antonio
Celebrating Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos is a time to remember our loved ones and celebrate their lives. Below are some ways to celebrate their memory in San Antonio:
San Antonio Museum of Art – Dia de los Muertos Family Day
The San Antonio Museum of Art is hosting a Touch-Free Family Day celebrating Día de los Muertos on Sunday, November 7. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., families can explore the Latin American galleries with a bilingual, self-paced scavenger hunt and learn more about Día de los Muertos with a link to a storytime video. Kids can also decorate a traditional sugar skull and craft tissue paper cempasuchil (marigolds). The best part? It’s free for SAISD students and families.
Link for art activity video demonstrations, virtual story time, and self-guided gallery walk available in the art kit. Art kits are first come, first served.
La Panadería – Pan de Muerto
Brothers José and David Cáceres opened bakery-cafe La Panadería in 2014 to share their Mexican heritage and love for baking with the people of their adopted hometown of San Antonio, Texas. So the Pan De Muerto is a way to celebrate Dia de Los Muertos, a day to honor our loved ones memories.
