El Paso Funeral Museum Celebrates Anniversary with Dia de los Muertos Event
The El Paso Funeral Museum is celebrating its 5th anniversary by putting the fun in funeral.
They are marking the occasion with a Dia de los Muertos event that includes Luchas and the Annual Hearse Show and Shine featuring some sweet rides – as well as a few last rides if you know what I mean and I think you do.
About the El Paso Funeral Museum
Located at 6111 S. Desert Blvd inside Perches Funeral Home, this museum is arguably the most unique in town. Among the displays are a refurbished horse-drawn hearse from the 1850s and an exhibit dedicated to Día de los Muertos altars.
Like other more traditional museums, it has memorabilia, oddities, artifacts, and, yes, even a gift shop.
What’s In Store at the Day of the Dead Event?
The free family-friendly event is going to be anything but a somber occasion.
Any day above ground is a good one, so you might as well have a good time, amirite? Yes, even at a funeral museum inside a funeral home.
Along with the static displays of classic cars and tricked-out hearses, the Dia de los Muertos event will include food trucks, vendors, an alter competition, a Lucha Frontera exhibition, and a Catrina Runway.
Wait, whaaat?! Yup, you read that correctly; a Catrina Runway. Elegant skeletal models will walk the walk and strike a pose on the catwalk.
