Monarchs, Midwest and Michoacán – Coming Home 

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) activities

This year’s theme is “Monarchs, Midwest and Michoacán – Coming Home.” In certain Mexican communities, the arrival of the Monarch butterfly becomes an integral part of the festivities. The monarch’s significance to Day of the Dead and its journey from the Midwest to Mexico will be explored through several all-new activities.
