Santa Barbara City College will host a Day of the Dead/El Dia de los Muertos reception. The community is invited to come take part in the Chumash Blessing, a mini-mercado, and free crafts and face painting for children. Musical entertainment and refreshments will be available.
Guest also can take a tour of the exhibit of traditional altars, art and mementos on display inside both the library and the library foyer which will be up beginning Saturday, October 26. The exhibit is assembled each year by SBCC students, staff, faculty and local community members.
The unity of life and death is the main theme of the El Día de los Muertos. The festival recognizes the belief that death is part of life and that the spirits of the dead return to their homes where they are honored as guests.
