Students from the Western Nevada College Latino Leadership Academy and the Associated Students of Western Nevada will present the fifth annual Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Celebration from Nov. 2 through Nov. 6.
The altars will be on display in the Art Gallery in the Bristlecone Building on the Carson campus and at Virgil Getto Hall lobby on the Fallon campus.
The community is invited to attend this traditional Mexican celebration, which honors deceased loved ones and/or their heroes by creating an altar that includes their pictures and favorite foods. There will also be a contest as part of the altar display. Viewing hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The Latino Outreach staff invites campus departments and student organizations to participate and create an altar with your team to become entered in a raffle. There will be prizes for the best three altars (sponsored by ASWN).
The prizes are as follows:
First place: lunch for all members
Second place: Wildcats gear
Third place: Donuts
There will be free Mexican bread (pan de muertos) and Mexican hot chocolate on Nov. 2.
