Día de Muertos

The Hood and UBBO, in partnership with the Mexican Embassy in Portugal, has organised the best programme to celebrate ""Día de Muertos"", on 1 November from 12:30pm at THE HOOD, in the UBBO Central Square.

It will be a special day with lots of activities such as traditional Mexican dancing and live music, a fantastic decoration of our neighbourhood and traditional altar, workshops for all ages, an artisan market and much more.
