Dia de los Muertos is a traditional Meso-American holiday dedicated to the ancestors; it honors both death and the cycle of life and celebrates the thin veil between life and death. More than 40 participants attended a four-week series of workshops preparing for the special day. Many thanks to the San Francisco Foundation and Bella Vista Foundation for providing support for the event as well as our many volunteers and friends at Pescadero Elementary School.
