Corazón Healdsburg’s annual Día de los Muertos event returned to the Healdsburg Plaza on Oct. 31, welcoming in hundreds of people for a day to remember those they’ve lost.
During the event, community members created altars under the Plaza, danced, listened to music and more. Corazón’s Día de los Muertos event is held annually and was started in 2016. There wasn’t an event last year, due to COVID-19.
“This year feels particularly important,” said Corazón CEO Glaydon de Freitas in a press release about the event. “With more than 400 Sonoma County residents lost to COVID-19 and the many other challenges the pandemic has brought, our families have weathered a lot. As we honor our dead, we hope to bring our community safely together in recognition of all that we have been through and all that we share.”
