Dia de los Muertos Entertainment Schedule

Xico’s Dia de los Muertos Celebration of Life Festival is this Saturday, November 5th 2011! So exciting and so much to do in 5 days (wow!). I’ll be posting some photos later in the week to get everyone excited, but for now, here’s the entertainment schedule so you know which performances to watch up close and when to break for delicious tacos and churros.

Join us at 2pm in the Xico Galería on San Marcos Pl for a reading with American Book Award Winner Stella Pope Duarte.
