‘Dia de los Muertos’


North County residents came to the Encinitas Library Nov. 1 for the city’s first Dia de los Muertos (“Day of the Dead”) celebration, a chance to honor and remember departed loved ones and have some fun in the bargain.

The event was organized by Encinitas Friends of the Arts, a nonprofit that formed in April. The event included dance performances and arts demonstrations, arts and crafts workshops and displays of “ofrendas,” or altars in tribute to departed friends and relatives. Food trucks were available to provide refreshments.
