Day of the Dead Celebration
Purdue University Northwest’s Building Community Through the Arts program is hosting a Día de los Muertos Celebration event. The event also known as Day of the Dead, is a blend of Mesoamerican ritual, European religion and Spanish culture that invites families to celebrate those they have lost through food, drink and music.
I met a lot of great people who turned out to be some of my best friends, and to actually run a live television show that airs on Lakeshore PBS is really, really valuable.
