Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) is one of the most significant festivals in Mexican culture, with celebration every year from 31 Oct to 2 Nov. It is a festival dated back to Aztec time in Mexico and is a time to remember and honor those who have passed. During the festival, people set up altars and decorate their homes and family graves with colorful Cempazuchi flower and calaveras skulls. It is the time of the year that people gather together to enjoy food, music and celebrate with their family, their loved ones and the spirits of the ancestors.
This year you can also enjoy the festival in Hong Kong as if you are in Mexico at Verde MAR between 29 Oct to 2 Nov.
During these five days, Chef Eligio has prepared the authentic Mexican goodies such as Pan de Muerto (Dead Man Bread), Pork Tamale, Chicken Mole, and Champurrado for us to experience a real Mexican Day of the Dead Festival.

To add on the fun, we decide to make our own decorations just like in Mexico. We also thank the talented 5-year-olds from Art Loop Studio for allowing us to display some of their wonderful artworks!
