This cultural celebration has deep roots in Latin America as we celebrate the passage of life and death. It's become a celebration with no borders.
During the month of October local artist Kyle Browne and Sara Peattie of the Puppeteers Cooperative are leading workshops as together we construct Day of the Dead themed puppets. These creations will be a centerpiece of a parade down Broadway from City Hall to Chelsea Square the night of our celebration. Want to join us for this artmaking? Contact Kyle at email@example.com
Saturdays at the Chelsea Senior Center:
October 15 - 10:30 am to noon
October 22 - 2 to 3:30 pm
