Celebrate Día de Muertos with us by purchasing a sugar skull decorating kit!  The sugar skull decorating kits are available as a grab and go activity.  And while you’re here, join us for a screening of Coco at 1pm!  (Coco and sugar skull bundle for both.)

The kit includes one 5-1/2” tall handmade artisanal sugar skull/Calaveritas de Azúcar, and decorative items including sparkly sequins, feathers and frosting.

***The number of sugar skulls is limited so please pre-order.  If we have extra, you will be able to pick up and pay onsite.  They will be available for pickup at Gorton Center, outside of the theater, between 1:00pm – 3:00pm on Saturday, October 30.

Sugar skulls are created by Maria Calderon of Sugar Skulls Xilotl and kits are underwritten for this event by Lydia Backer of Life & Death. Follow Maria on Instagram @sugarskullsxilotl and visit Lydia’s website at mylifeanddeath.com
