Day of the Dead Festival in Fountain Hills

Sofrita Restaurant Hosts a New, Local Festival  

Day of the Dead PosterThe festive Day of the Dead celebration originated in Mexico, and is now celebrated in conjunction with All Saints Day across much of South and Central America.  It is a joyous time when dead loved ones are remembered and their lives are celebrated with prayer and feasting.  Children are traditionally given small sugar candy skulls, and brightly decorated skeleton icons are traditionally depicted dancing and celebrating with their families.

Sofrita, Fountain Hills’ key Latin-themed restaurant is hosting a festive Day of the Dead celebration highlighted by performances by the Ballet Folklorico. This elaborately-costumed troupe has performed internationally and is famous for preserving Latin dance traditions. Fun, flashy, and totally entertaining; reservations are suggested.

On October 24th Ballet Folklorico will perform at Sofrita restaurant at 12:00pm, 2:00pm, 4:00pm, and a final Performance at 6:00pm.
