El Día de los Muertos or the Day of the Dead Celebration in Mesa, Arizona on October 30 -October 31. El Dia de los Muertos - Day of the Dead at Mesa Arts CenterWe were in Mesa this afternoon and stumbled upon an Dia del los Muertos celebration outside at the Mesa Arts Center.  There were numerous booths with various "Dia del los Muertos" goods.

Also a temporary stage was setup outside on the northside of the Mesa Arts Center building for live performances.   The Mesa Arts Center was also holding various demos and an "open house" of many of the art labs/classrooms.  Glass blowing, paper making and ceramics were some of the demos available.  It was a nice way to spend time outside in the great fall weather.
