La Raza hosts annual Dia De Los Muertos event

Brightly colored marigolds and Spanish music filled the air for La Raza’s annual Dia De Los Muertos celebration that took place from 5 – 10 p.m. on Thursday in the University Student Union Ballrooms.

The night included vendors selling homemade jewelry, clothing and paintings, music and dance performances from both student and local artists and free food from the Long Beach restaurant La Ceiba.

Attendees were informed on various backgrounds through cultural performances, speeches and altars on display.

The holiday is meant to be a time of celebration and remembrance in the Chicano culture as people honor loved ones who have passed away through singing, dancing and art.
