Annual Dia De Los Muertos Celebration says
Pirate has hosted a neighborhood party and artistic celebration honoring Dia de los Muertos for three decades, becoming an established Denver tradition. This family-friendly event features Day of the Dead-inspired art and handmade altars from locals, plus Aztec dancers, piñatas, drinks, and more. There will a candlelight procession from the gallery to Our Lady of Guadalupe Church to honor the dead in the evening.

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a festive time to honor deceased relatives, satirize the living, and entice the spirits to visit with flower-decked altars and offerings of food. Day of the Dead, is considered a day of cheerful celebration rather than one of mourning.

This year the show opens October 14, 2016 and runs through October 30th. The big celebration takes place on the evening of Saturday October 29th:

Doors Open - 5:00 pm
Traditional Aztec Dancers - 6:00 pm
Kids' Piñata - 7:00 pm
Artistic Performance - 7:30 pm
Candlelight Procession - 8:00 pm
