Members of CU’s UMAS y MEXA Bellas and Sigma Lambda Beta put together a face-painting station at the University Memorial Center on campus to celebrate El Dia de los Muertos on Wednesday in Boulder.

El Dia de los Muertos is a Mexican holiday honoring those who have passed away. Honoring the dead usually involves the building of ornate altars were ‘offerings’ such as candy and bread are placed besides photographs or candy skulls representing the dead. It is observed every year on Nov. 2.

Here are some photos of the even. Enjoy!
