The 2021 Entierra la Pandemia! grand finale celebration is full of family-friendly food, displays, music, dance, and a traditional (electric) candle-light procession in honor of Los Muertos. The event starts with a low-rider car show and competition on Market Street, complete with a DJ playing vintage music. Vendors will have food, beverages, arts and crafts for sale. Face painters will be on hand to paint traditional “Calaveras” designs – brightly colored skull faces.

Shortly after sunset, Danza Xantotl indigenous dance troupe of Santa Rosa will perform a traditional indigenous blessing and dance honoring the ancestors. The drummers and dancers will then lead participants on an electric candle-light procession, a slow walk around the Town Green with participants honoring friends, family and ancestors who’ve passed away.

The procession will return to the Town Green stage for performances by the Luther Burbank Center Mariachi Ensemble and Ballet Folklorico Jazmin. Both are youth performing arts groups.

Covid-19 Vaccination Booth
In a nod to the pandemic, both the Oct. 2 and the Oct. 30 live events on the Town Green will have a Covid vaccination booth available for anyone who still needs or wants a vaccine. “We thought these events might be a good place to reach out to community members who may not have had access to the vaccine yet, or who still have questions about the vaccine,” Nuñez said.

The full schedule of events is available on the organization’s website: www.windsormuertos.org.

Links to the organization’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/WindsorMuertos) and Instagram account (www.instagram.com/windsor_muertos/) are on the website as well.
