Día de los Muertos
The centerpiece of our Community Arts program is our annual Día de los Muertos celebration. A comparsa (procession) through downtown San Jose ends at the MLK Library Plaza, where free dance, music and drumming performances take place, along with arts activities for our communities children. In 2012, over fifteen thousand people participated in this event.
