The Chicano Humanities and Arts Council, at 772 Santa Fe Drive, begins its month-long Día de los Muertos celebration tonight with an exhibit of traditional artwork and home altars, a performance by Aztec dancers, traditional pan de muertos (sweet "bread of the dead") and Mexican hot chocolate. The fete continues tomorrow with a Día de los Muertos craft-making class and storytelling session at 11 a.m. at the Denver Inner City Parish, 910 Galapago Street, followed by a Día de los Muertos procession leaving from the parish at 2 p.m. and winding its way back to CHAC. After all that, Halloween will just seem so three days ago. Admission to tonight's reception is $10 for non-CHAC members; for more information, go to www.chacweb.org or call 303-571-0440.
