Dia de Oakwood, was born as a collaboration between the organizers of the Day of the Dead 5k; Angela Salamanca, Natalia Campbell, the Oakwood Cemetery director, Robin Simonton, and Artist Peter Marin. The intention with this event is to create an installation piece that celebrates all the traditional aspects of the Day of the Dead holiday, as well as create a new space for kids and the community to contribute. This celebration will take place at the Historic Oakwood Cemetery over a few days, with several activities open to the public.

We will be screening Coco on the lawn for free. Families are welcome to join and enjoy the movie, and tour the installation. There will also be a few local food trucks on site.
