Celebrate Dia de los Muertos at the Evergreen Brick Works {Event}

I received this press release about an event coming up on Sunday at the Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto. I think it sounds like a fun day out with the kids - face painting, great food, and learning about Latin American culture. Here's the release, with a link to their website for full information. Maybe we'll see you there!

What A celebration of Latin American culture, with all day family-friendly events including live music and dance, Mayan calendar readings, a Mexican food market, calavera (skull) face painting, and chocolate and clay workshops!
