Preparations underway for 3rd annual Dia de los Muertos Altar Walk

The third annual Dia de los Muertos Altar Walk in Niles is November 1 and 2. Niles Discovery Church will be a stop on the walk again  for both altars and refreshments. This year, our altars will be displayed and refreshments will be served in the child care room of the church. Many thanks to Dharma Drum Mountain Buddhist Association for providing this location and participating in the creation of their community altar.

If you would like to participate by creating an individual altar honoring a loved one, please sign up with Melissa Palleschi. You can bring a picture of a loved one you wish to honor to add to  Niles Discovery Church’s Community Altar.

We also need people to provide snacks for visitors and people to host our space or each day.  Please contact Melissa to sign up to help with either of these tasks.

The opening ceremonies for the Altar Walk will be on Saturday, November 1, at the Niles Town Plaza, 1:00-3:00.  Our display will be open on Saturday from 3:00 to 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, and on Sunday from noon to 7:00 p.m.
