Saturday: Dia de los Muertos Celebration at Tradiciones

By Michele Laudig

It always feels like there's a party going on at Tradiciones, but tomorrow (Nov.1) I'm sure it'll be more festive than ever with the first annual Dia de los Muertos Celebration starting at 6 p.m.

In honor of Day of the Dead, there will be a display of work by local artists inspired by the holiday and Mexican culture in general, traditional Aztec and Mexican dance performances, and a bartender competition. And since Hornitos Tequila is one of the sponsors, there will also be tequila-infused hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, so you'll have plenty of opportunities to toast the dearly departed.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $20 at the door; call Tradiciones to purchase: 602-254-1719.
