EDMOND — The University of Central Oklahoma’s Hispanic American Student Association will host its annual Day of the Dead celebration at 6 p.m. Friday in the Nigh University Center Ballrooms. The family-friendly event is free and open to the public.

Day of the Dead, or “Dia de los Muertos,” is a holiday traditionally observed Oct. 31 through Nov. 2 throughout Mexico and in parts of the United States. The holiday is a time of celebration to remember friends and family members who have died.

The UCO event will include live performances, complimentary food, face painting, and various arts and crafts.

The Day of the Dead celebration is a Student Transformative Learning Record-tagged event, and students who bring their student ID cards will receive STLR credit in the Global and Cultural Competencies tenet.
