Al Borde‘s Día de los Muertos honored this traditional Mexican holiday by inviting guests to view a traditional ofrenda (altar) with pictures of loved ones, papel picado, candles, chrysanthemums (which represent the sun that guides the soul of the deceased loved one), pan de muerto (bread for the deceased), toy figurines, calaveritas (painted skull figurines), and food offerings.

The Al Borde art team created custom Día de los Muertos t-shirts once again for each guest in attendance. This year’s t-shirt featured a colorful alebrije-inspired design of a jaguar and skull, with the inscription “Nadie muere, solo se sueña” (Nobody dies, you only dream) on the back.

Past t-shirts have featured designs inspired by Disney Pixar’s Coco, the traditional game Lotería,  Juan Gabriel and David Bowie, and calaveras as superheroes.

The yearly event has been hosted since 2007 by El Clasificado and Al Borde.
