Edison Language Academy will hold its Annual Festival de Otoño and Dia De Los Muertos gallery in Santa Monica, CA. The school is also celebrating its 25th Anniversary as a dual-immersion school. The event combines art, theatre, music, food, poetry, games and a multi-cultural celebration of the season. The event, which attracts over 1,500 current, past and future students and community members, features the largest Day of the Dead Exhibit on the Westside, a creative collaboration of altars by Edison students, teachers and parents in the Mexican and Central American tradition of remembering deceased loved ones. Live music, karaoke, authentic Mexican food, children’s entertainment, haunted house, rock climbing and arts and crafts make it a one-of-a-kind event for the entire family.
The event features cultural traditions designed to commemorate those who have passed away, including a series of alfombras, beautiful displays made of dust, flowers and other native materials that are traditionally designed and prepared on the streets of villages and towns in many countries in Latin America.
A carnival of games, art-and-crafts, plus hot Latin and dance tunes from DJ Alex Reyes and live music will provide entertainment for kids and grown-ups alike. Authentic tamales and pozole made by parents, as well as homemade baked goods, will be for sale. Prices for food and games range from $1 to $5.
