Event Description

Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens collaborated with artist Ivonne Pinto-Garcia to create a special Dia de los Muertos ofrenda, or altar, in our Back Gallery. The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday where families welcome back the souls of their deceased relatives for a brief reunion that includes food, drink and celebration. An ofrenda is an altar built to honor lost loved ones and made to connect both worlds, the living and the dead. Guests to the museum are welcome to leave notes or photos in remembrance of loved ones who have passed.

Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens is also offering a Sugar Skull Workshop on Sunday, October 29. Click here for more information and to register!
