☞ SEE: Day of the Dead at El Museo del Barrio

Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, starts this Friday through Monday and El Museo del Barrio has put together some special events for the kids this weekend. Often compared to Halloween, Day of the Dead is actually a Mexican celebration that respects the visiting souls of deceased loved ones (who return during this time of year). Mariachi Concerts, puppets, traditional mask constructions, food tasting, a costume parade in Central Park's Harlem Meer and more. This sounds like a must for folks with children of all ages. Call( 212) 831-7272 for details or go to the El Museo del Barrio website for the full schedule: LINK. Located at 1230 Fifth Avenue at 104th Street, the museum is right next to Central Park. Closest train is the 2,3 express at 110th Street or the 6 train at 103rd. Photo courtesy of El Museo del Barrio
