"Day of the Dead is one of the many successful events organized, promoted and run by Redmond High School clubs," said City of Redmond recreation program assistant Rana Shmait. "We partnered with Latinos Unidos to make this Day of the Dead both entertaining and arts focused while maintaining culturally relevant activities traditionally observed on this holiday."
Club members shared the significance of the celebration in both English and Spanish. All participants were involved in the projects and many took their creations home with them at the end of the night which included sugar skulls and paper flowers.
"Cultural programming is an important part of the teen center and this is one of many events that we do throughout the year showcasing the richness of youth in Redmond," said Redmond teen and 50+ programs administrator Ken Wong.
