The Traditional Dia de Los Muertos Festival may smack of tones of Halloween and sound ghoulish, but it's not. This Mexican version celebrates love and respect for deceased family members in a joyful way at the Day of the Dead Festival.
Head to the Boxhill Community Arts Centre at 470 Station St, Box Hill on Saturday 2 November 2019 from 12pm to 5pm for a free family-friendly event. You'll find a very colourful event that explodes with joy. Lots of free activities will be on hand for the whole family, along with live music and traditional Mexican food.
There's a live band and Mariachi following the Festival from 8pm to 11pm at the same place. It's a Tribute to Juan Gabriel and hosted by the Sin Frontera Band whom will also be performing amongst other performances. This is a ticketed event at $20 a ticket plus fees which you can get HERE. Make it a day and night to remember and enjoy well-known singers from Melbourne.
