Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a Mexican holiday that celebrates the lives of loved ones who have passed away through alters decorated with candles, sugar skulls, marigolds, food, beverages and clothes.

La Casa will be building an alter that honors those from RCC that have passed away.

Light refreshments and Mexican candy will be served at the event.

The event is free and open to the public.
