While most of Utah runs around trying to trick, treat and otherwise scare the bejabbers out of each other on Halloween, the state's Latinos have a different slant the holiday. The Dia de los Muertos Celebration at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center
is a little religion, a little superstition and a whole lotta party going on.
It's an "If you can't beat the grim reaper—goof on him," attitude.
On Friday (Nov. 2) 6-9:30 p.m., you'll find traditional food, music, dance and (death is kid friendly, after all) children's activities.
The Day of the Dead Altar and other decorations and displays will open beginning Oct. 29.
And, like death itself, admission is FREE!
