KUSA - It's a 3,000-year-old tradition in Mexico, and now the rich tradition of Dia de los Muertos - or Day of the Dead - is coming to life in Denver.
Come enjoy a free art exhibit at the Mexican Cultural Center that takes you to the Pueblo de Mas Alla - or the Town Hereafter - and experience life in a small Mexican town where its inhabitants are all skeletons made out of paper mâché.
The exhibit includes the street corner market, children selling balloons and candy in the streets, and even a bride about to get married at a church.
"It's a celebration to honor our loved ones who have departed from this earth. We are not worshiping the dead, we are celebrating the life that our loved ones led," Acting Consul General of Mexico Adrian Garcia said.
The exhibit opens Oct. 23 through Nov. 22 at the Mexican Cultural Center at 5350 Leetsdale Dr. Exhibit our are from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Find out more here: http://www.mccdenver.org/.
