SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 Utah) – A Day Of The Dead ceremony was observed at the state capitol today.
It sounds like a grim thing to do, but this is a celebration deeply steeped in the Mexican culture. The festival included music and colorful displays.
Salt Lake Mayor Jackie Biskupski signed a proclamation recognizing the day.
The festival also remembered people who gave the gift of life through organ, eye and tissue donation and urged everyone to sign up for that on the Utah Organ Donor Registry.
