There are skeletons, decorations and candy, but don't mistake it for Halloween. It's Dia de los Muertos, celebrated across Latin America to honor the dead. For the third year in a row, JUMP, the Idaho State Museum and members of the Boise Latinx community are joining forces to throw the "Dia de Muertos" party. Starting the day after Halloween, it will feature a traditional parade that will set the tone for the rest of the two-day event. Later, check out lavishly decorated offerings for dead loved ones, get your face painted in traditional designs, check out authentic performances and holiday-inspired art from local high school students. On day two, the Idaho State Museum will host a panel discussing the significance of Dia de los Muertos, as well as a screening of Pixar's film Coco in both Spanish and English.

5 p.m.-9 p.m.. FREE. JUMP. 1000 W. Myrtle St., Boise, jumpboise.org.
