From Miguel Martinez:
The local Latino Community is putting on an event of ” Dia De Los Metros” (Day of the Dead) for November 8th, 6pm at the Aquarium Village in South Beach.
This event is in remembrance of our families, friends, and ancestors that passed to the next life. As a Mexican native, every November 2nd our deceased comes back home for one day to be with us and have their favorite meal and drink when they were alive. Its a tradition to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos all over Mexico.
The origin of Dia De Los Muertos or “Mihcailhilt” (Nahuatl Aztec language) goes back thousands of years back to the Aztec empire. The Aztecs believed in the after life. We therefore celebrate and share our Mexican Culture with Lincoln County families.
Everybody is invited to this event. We will have a shrine presentation (altar) we called Ofrenda, Pre-Hispanic music from Sonidos Del Mexico Antiguo, DJ Ghost will be playing the best music, Titlakawan Aztec Dancers group, and Face painting. Admission is $10 at the entrance door. Children are free.
