Día de los Muertos
We celebrated Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in St. Helena on Sunday with a special visit from La Catrina, musical performance by the St. Helena Community Band, singing by Jazmin Oro, and dancing by the Los Diablos Oaxaquenos Del Valle. Nimbus Arts displayed a beautiful Paloma Community Altar which was designed to show reverence for the Paloma, or Dove, and our loved ones who are no longer with us. Community organizations and families displayed photos, foods, flowers, and personal items on altars to honor the life, death, and memories of those who have passed.
Thank you to our amazing staff, volunteers, and generous sponsors who made this event possible: Alan Galbraith - Former Mayor, Jones Family Vineyards - Elaine and Rick Jones, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, The Doctors Company, Damian Maldonado Memorial Foundation, Westamerica Bank, City of St. Helena, and Napa Valley College Upper Valley Campus.
