Super Sabado-Target Free Third Saturdays at El Museo – Warburg Realty – A Higher Standard Since 1896

Day of the dead

I was fortunate enough to be at a gathering this week,where the manager for Family Programs and Cultural Celebrations from El Museo del Barrio presented to us ,her fellow members of Las Comadres de Las Americas about the upcoming “Dia De Los Muertos” celebration. A few others also shared their traditions related to this holiday and its origins.

If you have not been to El Museo del Barrio in a long time-or not at all,you may not realize what a wonderful new look they have.They undertook an enormous renovation which was completed last year,I remember going to the opening festivities and they were simply fabulous !

The third Saturday of every month,they have free admission-and events targeted for all age groups.

Great event to learn about Mexico’s 3000 year old tradition about how they commemorate their friends and relatives who have passed away.We were learning about the altar that was comissioned for this years event,and how it is also a public alter-so you may bring a note or a photo to be placed there as well.

This celebration will include a musicial procession thru Central Park,concerts,face painting,arts and crafts ,story time and much more.

Many great places to eat,also the Museum of the City of New York is right across from El Museo del Barrio,as well as Central Park’s Conservatory Gardens.

A great way to spend a day !
