Día de los muertos party at library Oct. 24

The whole family is invited to a Día de los muertos celebration 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, October 24, at the Fond du Lac Public Library’s Children’s Room.

Translated as day of the dead, Día de los muertos is celebrated throughout Mexico and acknowledged around the world in other cultures. It focuses on remembering family members and friends who have died.

With help from UW-Extension, the party will include many traditions and aspects of the holiday, including an authentic ofrenda (memorial) and a craft to make a paper sugar skull mask. A scavenger hunt for holiday clues, treats and face painting will be included. The event is free; no registration required.

 For more information, call the Children's Desk at (920) 322-3940.
