While a strong breeze prevented the traditional procession and burning of the offerings to the dearly departed, it was not enough to dampen the spirits at the Snowdrift Art Space which presented its annual Día de los Muertos Celebration on Nov. 1, 2014 in Winslow. The event included performers from Winslow Ballet Folklorico, a sugar-skull workshop courtesy of Flagstaff Nuestras Raíces, plenty of food and drink and, of course, the display of ofrendas / altars honoring departed loved ones.
