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.
