Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is an ancient celebration brought to us by indigenous Mexican culture. The series of days, which ends on All Souls Day, is a celebration of those who have passed on before us. The Mexican-American Scholarship Cultural and Recreation Association (MASCARA) holds an annual exhibition in the Santa Maria Town Center, to show the community that mourning can also be a happy, joyous celebration of the lives of those who have passed.
