First Annual Festival Dia de Los Muertos


Thank you to everyone who came out to our first annual Day of the Dead Festival! The weather was perfect and we had a ball. As director, I myself learned things about Dia de los Muertos that I did not know before. I am thankful to Maestra Monse for her guidance in helping plan this festival. It was a beautiful event and a great way to have fun with our preschool families and also to remember loved ones who have moved on.

A special thanks to:

  • Monserrat Frederiksen for arranging the atole (traditional Mexican drink) and pan de muertos (bread of the dead)
  • Tacos al Nene for setting up and serving the most amazing traditional tacos
  • Kona Ice
  • Mr. Twister for being a phenomenal balloon artist and meeting every child’s request
  • Kelly of Funomenal Faces for her beautiful face paintings
  • Asbrelle Alston for volunteering her time at the Dia de los Muertos Tattoo booth
  • The Mellor Kids and Maestra Miry for helping at the flower making station
  • Wow Factor of Wilmington for the super fun bounce house and slide
  • To all of our parents for their unending support

We cannot wait to do it again next year. See more photos from the event on our Wilmington Bilingual Preschool Facebook page!
