Día de los Muertos, or the "Day of the Dead", is a traditional Mexican holiday that has been embraced worldwide. On Día de los Muertos, the Windward community took the time to remember and celebrate the lives and memories of those who have passed away in a special lunchtime celebration on the Bridge. Student and parent volunteers set up an “ofrenda” or altar, which community members adorned with photographs and mementos of their loved ones. Participants were also invited to share in pan dulce, or sweetbread, as well as pan de muerto, a traditional staple.
Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers and contributors for making this vibrant display of community so meaningful!
