For those travelers who want to immerse themselves in the local culture, the Instituto de Cultura, Tourismo y Arte de Mazatlan and the School of Arts invite them to the Dia de Muertos Workshop 2015.
According to El Cid Vacations Club, the Dia de Muertos Workshop will be held on evenings and weekends through to the actual Day of the Dead. The workshop offers a variety of classes on Day of the Dead-themed art and activities for all ages. Some classes are free and others require payment for materials.
These courses include:
- Etching on tortillas (Grabado Sobre Tortillas)
- Body and face painting
- Musical ceramic calavera
- Dia de Muertos T-shirts
- Monumental Cardboard Calavera
Some people who attend the workshops might be able to volunteer for Dia de Muertos activities later. These activities include being a make-up artist for other revelers, scaring people, running equipment or dancing in the callejoneada.
Dia de Muertos is a public holiday in Mexico and is also celebrated in regions throughout the world. It is held annually October 31, November 1 and November 2. The holiday is a time for family and friends to gather together and pray for and remember those friends and family members who have died. El Cid Vacations Club shares that the prayers and rituals are also meant to help support their spiritual journey.
One tradition of Dia de Muertos includes people bringing gifts to the graves of the deceased, such as sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed. Some people also leave possessions of the deceased at their graves.
