October’s end is around the corner, and on Saturday, October 31, the Midtown Global Market is presenting a free, open-to-the-public Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) event.
Come support independent business owners on this day of tradition, education, food, art, and mariachi music. Market restaurants of Mexican heritage will be offering goodies based on family recipes at $1 each, with participants including:
Andy’s Garage: Pizole (soup/stew)
Los Ocampo: Champurrado (warm Mexican chocolate beverage)
Manny’s Tortas: Hot cocoa and pan de muerto (a sugary pastry)
Salsa a la Salsa: Tamales
The public is encouraged to bring small items and framed photos of their deceased loved ones to display until November 5. The first 400 children under age 10 will also get to participate in free art projects and will receive a Halloween bag filled with candy and a toothbrush. Halloween costumes are encouraged. The market requires all guests under 3 to wear a mask.
