Visit Kruckeberg Botanical Gardens
Enjoy exploring the gardens, take part in the scavenger hunt, grab a craft pack for your kids, and don't forget to pick up a Sugar Skull on your way out to decorate at home
Ofrendas (Spanish: "offering") honor, remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones who have departed, and the items on the altars help to lead their spirits home for the Days of the Dead.
We will have some altars set up in the gardens, and community members are invited to create ofrendas, which will be exhibited virtually on our website.
