There’s so much to love about Dia de Los Muertos, the Mexican national holiday that celebrates the “dearly departed” who have never really left our lives. The festivities are a funny-sad-scary storm of candy, alcohol, dancing, puppets, Catholicism, paganism, and kick-ass skull faces Think of it as a George Romero movie remade by Sid and Marty Krofft, or The Walking Dead with groovy music and without the consumption of entrails. Artes de la Rosa, the performing and visual arts entity of the Rose Marine Theatre, hosts its annual Dia de Los Muertos celebration 7pm Saturday (Oct 27) at the Rose, 1440 N Main St, FW. The evening begins with the traditional drum and puppet procession from nearby Marine Park (N Calhoun St & E Central Ave); folks will begin gathering at the park between 6:30 and 7pm. It’s free, so bring all your dead (and live) family, friends, lovers, and enemies.
