Latin music and Mexican food are a few of the attractions Saturday afternoon at the Surrey Museum, hosting a Mexican Fiesta as part of its ongoing Discovery Saturday Series.
If you’ve ever wondered what The Day of the Dead is about, come out from 1-4 p.m. Nov. 16 for a taste. There will be dancing, crafts, and an introduction to Mexican culture and the Day of the Dead festival, courtesy of Latincouver, a multicultural non-profit organization bringing Latin Americans living in B.C. together.
The Mexico Vivo Dancers will perform regional Mexican dances and share the background and history of each dance.
“I feel great love and passion for my Mexican culture and music,” says founder and director Maria
Hilmer. “The purpose of this group is to share this with the public through our dances.”
Children can make crafts and attend a special Day of the Dead story time at 2 p.m.
The museum’s Honey Hooser Textile Studio will have authentic, handwoven and embroidered material from Mexico.
Munch on organic tortilla chips and salsa, or purchase a snack from the cup-a-corn vendor.
The Surrey Museum is located at 17710-56A Avenue.
