Anita de Lucio was born in the windy state of Hidalgo, Mexico. Growing up in Burbank, California, her grandmother bought her sugar skulls, set up small altars for her deceased relatives in her home and brought Dia de los Muertos bread from Mexico before it was even available in the States. Anita grew up celebrating the early days of November when the souls of loved ones come to visit. Colorful and overflowing with offerings, the Dia de los Muertos altar is a celebration of those who have passed on. Come join Anita for a hands on workshop and help create the Dia de los Muertos altar for Bernal Branch
