Cloverdale Funeral home has done an outstanding job of hosting art and cultural events antithetical to what traditionally happens at mortuaries, namely funerals. From an exhibit of tattooists' art to a demonstration by an ice sculptor, the events have been entertaining and lively, intended to help alleviate some of the unease people feel about funeral homes. The upcoming Dia De Los Muertos Festival will therefore be a perfect fit.
The event is hosted in conjunction with the Idaho Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Hispanic Cultural Center and will bring people together for a night of remembrance, food, drinks, games, parades, entertainers, vendors and more.
Why didn’t someone think of this before? A Day of the Dead celebration at a funeral home? Duh.
