Día de los Muertos Altar Exhibit

Family members honor their deceased loved ones with ofrendas or offerings such as photographs, bread, foods, flowers, toys, and other symbolic offerings. Personalize the altar with images of saints, favorite objects, or whatever you think would honor your loved one. Altar exhibit competition contestants could win 1st, 2nd or 3rd place. Submission deadline is October 29th, 2010. Go to meca-houston.org for more info.
