The Kansas City Museum hosted its 6th Annual Dia de Muertos/Day of the Dead Celebration on Sunday (Oct. 20) at Kessler Park.
Hosted in partnership with Mattie Rhodes Art Center, this annual celebration explores the history and cultural traditions of the Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos. This year, the event attracted dozens of people.
The free events offered activities like arts and crafts stations for children, where they could puppetry by StoneLion Puppet Theatre, a fashion show by Giselle’s Bridal KC, live music by Mundo Nuovo and food trucks.
Attendees also were able to add the name of their loved ones to the ofrenda at the KC Museum. The ofrenda often holds pictures of loved ones who have died and their favorite foods or treat while on earth.
