Get Ready for Day of the Dead!

Seeing the Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) article in the current City Arts Tacoma magazine reminded me that it's THAT time of the year again! Time to join the paper mache workshops (FREE!) every Saturday this month hosted by 6th Ave folks. The goal of the workshop is to produce paper mache figures for use in the annual 6th Ave Day of the Dead Procession.

For more info on the event check out the 6th Avenue Merchants Association website.

See photos from previous events.
