LAKE ELSINORE – Lake Elsinore’s Studio 395 honored Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead online recently. The Village On Grand Community Center has remembered the holiday for the past nine years. “In this year of COVID-19, we did not want to cancel all celebrations and the opportunity for our community to participate in a beautifully therapeutic holiday in a time of so much loss,” Rebecca Esquibel, CEO of Studio 395, said. The Day of the Dead Traditions and Celebrations virtual event will be available online throughout November, including a look at the art and symbolism of the holiday, along with video representations of three contests: creating a virtual altar, a costume “parade” and a children’s art exhibit.
