Super Sabado: Dia de los Muertos

Though Mexico's Da de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) has not yet arrived (it's Thursday, November 1), you'd never know it if you'd been in East Harlem this past Saturday. That's when El Museo del Barrio pulled out the stops for its annual Super Sbado festival, where kids took in Mexican music and dance performances, fashioned votive candles out of paper, reflected on the holiday's meaning—and got some of the coolest face paintings we've ever seen. Click through our photos to look for your little one celebrating the unique holiday.
