Do you know about the Day of the Dead? Read on!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHello EC Toronto students!

As most of you probably know, next Monday EC Toronto will be closed due to Remembrance Day.

As ALL OF YOU know, Toronto never stops and this week-end offers hundreds of events to participate in!

We found particularly interesting the Harbourfront Day of the Dead Festival, all weekend from Saturday November 9th  to Monday, November the 11th.

Join this typical Mexican festival honouring the dead!

This celebration is an ancient festivity with origins in pre-Hispanic Mexico. It is a warm social event with bright and colorful decorations, abundance of food, drinks, music and great company.

Harbourfront Centre, the Mexican Consulate and the Mexican community in Toronto will celebrate this historic festivity with a weekend filled with music, folkloric dance, community-children’s crafts, artwork, cooking demonstrations and much more.

Sounds good, doesn’t it?  See you there!
