This exciting one-day event at Concordia Cemetery, 3700 E. Yandell (MAP), is a cultural and spiritual celebration  commemorating our lost loved ones.  Revelers are dressed in vintage Mexican clothing complete with the traditional Calaveras (Skulls) painted on their faces, with dozens of artisans and vendors, a scavenger hunt, live music, food trucks, face painters, poetry readings and Altares (decorated graves), arts, crafts and Ceremonial Offerings.  Performances by Matachines, Mariachis, Aztec dancers, a Sunset Fire Dance performance, PLUS 10-foot tall Mojingaga skeletons roaming the Cemetery will thrill young and old! Admittance Cost: $5.00 adults; discounts for Military, Students and Seniors over 60 years; kiddos under six free. Dress Calacas or Catrinas! Proceeds benefit Concordia Heritage Association, an all-volunteer, non-profit organization which maintains, preserves and protects the Historic Concordia Cemetery.
