At the Dio De Los Muertos event, at the bottom floor of El Centro, we had the opportunity to experience part of the culture through its food. There were an array of foods ranging from mole, arroz, frijoles, and a selection of desserts, from arroz con leche, to champurrado, pan dulce, and handfuls of candy. After this, there was a musical procession bringing the event participants from El Centro to the centillion building, followed by folkloric dancing performances. No doubt, this event highlighted the beauty of Latin art, narration of silent stories, and traditions like sugar skull costumes, live music, and the celebration of unity within Latinos remembering loved ones, forgotten ones, and ones who continue la lucha. We couldn’t have had a better experience in El Centro de la Raza.
