SAY Sí’s fourth annual Muertitos Fest offers a feast for the senses. Guests can shop for handmade items, sample regional cuisine, view folk art, photography, altars and ofrendas (including one remembering papel picado artist Jorge Rosano), and enjoy music and dance presentations on two stages. Thursday’s preview event includes performances by Tejano vocalist Lariza, multi-disciplinary artists Nicolas Valdez and Vincent Valdez, and the genre-blending Trio Azul. After folklorico dancers, Teatro Alas and conjunto legend Chucho Perales take the stage on First Friday, a traditional Dia de los Muertos procession wraps up the evening’s festivities. Kid-friendly fun continues on Saturday during hands-on folk art workshops and continuous performances throughout the day.
