Día de los Muertos draws crowd to Cheekwood Botanical Garden

The 16th annual Día de los Muertos took place Oct. 24 at Cheekwood Botanical Garden in Belle Meade. The popular Latin American family celebration was filled with activities including live performances, an international marketplace, food trucks with Latin cuisine and interactive art activities for everyone.

Translated as “Day of the Dead,” Día de los Muertos is a day-long celebration for Nashville’s Hispanic population as well as for families throughout the area.

The colorful festivities included face painting, shopping, watching the Aztec dancers, eating Mexican food at the food trucks, live music, coloring skull masks, interesting dolls, and enjoying the beautiful grounds all decked out for Cheekwood Harvest with flowers, pumpkins and scarecrows.

The weather was overcast but nice and crowds of all ages certainly enjoyed the festival.
