FLAIM Fall Festival is Friday, November 8, from 3:00 - 5:30 PM at FLAIM’s campus, 4510 Bawell St. It is a world-class event with live music, food and games for the whole family. Proceeds raised by the event will go to FLAIM’s library, classroom technology enhancement, sound system for the gym, outdoor digital marquee and continued improvements to the school!!
El Día de los Muertos
For the second year, FLAIM’s Fall Festival lands near El Día de los Muertos, or The Day of the Dead, which is November 2nd.
Día de los Muertos is a Latin American custom that celebrates life and honors the dearly departed. Families make colorful altars in their homes in honor of their deceased loved ones, and the altars are decorated with flowers, candles, their loved one's favorite food and pan de muerto (a slightly sweet bread specifically made for this time). The inextinguishable tradition dates back 3,000 years, during the time of the Aztecs.
