Dia de Los Muertos Celebrations in Carlsbad 2018

 

Leo Carrillo Historic Ranch Park is a beautiful place to visit in the residential community of Rancho Carrillo in Carlsbad, and a very special resource for our community, with a number of events during the year – a movie night, a western festival and celebrations at Christmas.

 

Enjoy a visit to Leo Carrillo Historic Ranch Park.

 

Dia de Los MuertosAnother recent and popular addition to the list of fun events is the 2-day Dia de los Muertos Celebration, the “Day of the Dead.”

 

This popular holiday, a Mexican tradition, around Halloween time is a celebration of life, a time when the spirits of the departed return to visit their families on October 31 and leave on November 2 (I have seen a number of different interpretations of this holiday, as well as dates, when looking online).

 

Dia de Los Muertos is celebrated with favorite foods and drinks of the departed, and decoration of altars with special objects and photos, to remember and honor the dead.

 

SATURDAY OCTOBER 27

Take a candle-light tour of the Hacienda to see the decorations and the “ofrendas” (offerings) for film star Leo Carrillo, his wife, Edith, and their daughter, Antoinette, who spent time there. You will also enjoy a buffet dinner of authentic Mexican foods. There will be live entertainment, and adult beverages for purchase.

 

Tours are from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Tickets are $45 per person (ages 13 and older, please) and may be purchased online.

Hi George Souto 

It's actually a pretty interesting celebration, especially if you get into the idea of honoring and remembering loved ones. Definitely different from Halloween!

We are going to a Dia de Los Muertos celebration at a friend's house on the 27th. Should be great fun! And yes, I am planning to have my face painted appropriately!

Hi Joe Pryor 

It's a pretty interesting celebration but one I was unfamiliar with until I moved to California.

That top photo is amazing, Jeff.  Up until about a decade ago, I didn't seem many of these celebrations in Sacramento.  But, they are increasingly being observed.
