The San Mateo County History Museum will join with Casa Círculo Cultural and the Redwood City Public Library to present a Mexican Day of the Dead celebration on Sunday, November 6, 2022, from 4-8 p.m. All activities are FREE. On Courthouse Square, just beneath the Museum, there will be music and traditional food. Within the Museum will be kid’s crafts, including the decoration of a clay calavera or skull. There will also be a Festival of Altars in the Museum’s historic Courtroom A. The altars traditionally salute family members who have passed and include some simple and some elaborate creations. They are often full of objects giving life to dead adult relatives, including food and drink. Altars dedicated to dead children include toys, candies and other goodies. The altars will remain on display through Friday, November 11, with November 11 a second special free admission day. Sponsorship for the programs within the Museum is provided by San Mateo County Supervisor David J. Canepa, through Measure K funding.
