Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a traditional celebration in Mexico and Latin America celebrating life and death where mourning is exchanged for celebration. Friends and family gather together to remember and pray for friends and family members who have died.Traditionally held on November 1 and 2, elements include making an altar for a deceased family member with photos, yellow marigold flowers, favorite food and drinks of the one being honored, sugar skulls, and music. Learn more about Dia de los Muertos on Thursday, November 4 from 5 pm to 8 pm at the Elgin Public Library and downtown. Traditional altars will be on display downtown with a strolling mariachi band and local volunteers will share the history, significance, and importance of this holiday with attendees. The library will host a class to paint sugar skulls, activities at the Depot Museum parking lot and a screening of the movie Coco at dusk, and a community altar at Firewild 201 N Main Street
