Dia de Muertos

Walsh and Alberto Fierro, Consul General of Mexico in Boston, announced a citywide photo collection process of departed loved ones in preparation for Boston’s third annual Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration. This year’s altar will take place in the south end of Franklin Park, in Scarboro Pond and over the pond’s bridge (closest to the golf course). The altar will be on display from Saturday, October 31 at 1 p.m. through Sunday, November 1 at 4 p.m.  This year, Dia de Muertos falls on the rare occurrence of a ‘blue moon’ (second full moon in the same month).  Families and friends are invited for a walk outdoors, or a ‘Paseo de la Luna Azul’, to take in the views of the elements of Dia de Muertos and the tradition’s relation to the natural world. Members of the public are invited to submit photos and memories of departed loved ones through boston.gov/diademuertos. Submissions received by 5 p.m. on Friday, October 30 will be displayed as part of the virtual citywide altar.
