Come celebrate with us:  Mexican dancers, craft activities for children (sugar skull decorating, face painting, tin crafting, tortilla making, flower tissue and papel picado making, etc.) and ends with a parade!

Volunteers needed:  See below.  This is a wonderful event to be a role model for community service with/for our children and help celebrate the cultural diversity in our community.

Background:  Montessori is joining efforts with the city of Henderson to host this community (free) cultural event.  The Mexican holiday Day of the Dead is a celebration of loved ones who have passed.
