Murphys Businesses Honor the Dead in the Land of the Skulls on Dia de los Muertos.
Join us on November 1, 2014
Murphys merchants and tasting rooms will be celebrating the Fifth Annual Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, on November 1st from 11-7 pm. Participating businesses will be offering authentic cultural art, food, sugar skulls, face painting and live music, as well as displaying altars celebrating the lives of those who have passed on but are with us in heart and spirit on the Day of the Dead. We’ll once again include a Catrina and Catrin Dress Contest at 6:00 pm Saturday afternoon at the Black Bart Theater followed by a Candle Light Procession to the Park. Those wishing to participate in the procession should meet in front of the Black Bart Theater at 6:45 pm. Make sure to bring your flashlight and warm clothing. Mexican hot chocolate and pan de muertos will be available for purchase after the ceremony.
New this year will be a celebration in the Park from 4 pm to 6 pm featuring folklorico dancers, musicians, food and drinks for sale prior to the Catrin/Catrina contest. Purchases of food, wine and beer will benefit the Murphys Community Club who are responsible for maintaining and improving our lovely park along the creek.
A visit to Murphys isn’t complete without a stop at Marisolio Tasting Bar at 488 Main Street. Our friendly and experienced staff would love to have you sample our delicious olive oils and balsamic vinegars.
