Dia de los Muertos Festival and 5K Run/Walk

The Dia de los Muertos Festival is a free, family-friendly event that aims to bring together the southside community to celebrate the traditions of the Day of the Dead and enjoy the grounds of Forest Home Cemetery and Arboretum. 

The event will kick off in the morning at 9am with a 5K run/ walk through the cemetery. After the run, there will be a festival from 10-3pm with food trucks, local vendors, arts and crafts for children, music and entertainment, traditional Dia de los Muertos ofrendas created by LUNA - Latinas Unidas En Las Artes, face painting, community resource booths, and so much more.
