Del Mar College’s 1412 Spanish students displayed a traditional “Día de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead) Altar and Presentation.

The altar followed Mexican culture, in which “ofrendas,” or offerings, are placed for deceased love ones, including candles, photos of the dead and some of their favorite foods, drinks or other items.

The event took place Oct. 30 at Wolf Recital Hall on East Campus.

This free event also included a dance celebrating the dead and performed by a DMC student dressed for the occasion.
