The Cleveland Public Theatre is bringing back its Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration to the Gordon Square Arts District for the 15th year in a row.

The free event kicks off Saturday, Nov. 2 at 11 a.m. with a bunch of family-friendly activities, including face painting and craft stations for kids. The big Procession of Skulls and Skeletons Parade rolls out at 3 p.m., with participants lining up at 2:30 p.m.

Local musicians are expected to play Latino-style music throughout the day, through 10 p.m., including mariachi and Latin jazz. There will also be dance performances, art vendors, food options and an art installation of a mock cemetery.



Those interested in participating in the parade this year must register, due to growing popularity.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
