Celebration of life & love

Celebrating the legacy of loved ones who meant so much
and touched more hearts than we'll ever know.


This year as part of Dia de Muertos, a holiday that celebrates death through life and the most important tradition for Mexico and Central America, JUMP will be transforming our park with traditional Dia de Muertos papel picado, music, and a community photo display, along with several altars in the first floor Lobby and Share Studio windows that can be viewed from the park. In addition to the park activities, we wanted to create some opportunities to engage the community virtually. See below for details on how you can participate virtually. 


Community Remembrance Display

October 28 - Mid November

 As COVID has prevented many of us from participating in gatherings to honor our loved ones who have passed, and as widespread migration has separated many families from their ancestors’ gravesites where cemetery processions and decorations were the centers of celebrations in years past, our hope is that this year’s Dia de Muertos activities at JUMP will allow us to honor our loved ones while providing a sense of comfort to those unable to celebrate in person with their families and friends. 

 JUMP is honored to help our community celebrate and remember their loved ones by submitting photos for our outdoor Community Remembrance Display of those who meant so much and touched more hearts than we’ll ever know. The display will be available for all to view in the JUMP Park from October 28th to mid-November.


Virtual Panel: Altar Symbolism | El Simbolismo de un Altar

October 28 6:00pm - 7:00pm

In addition to the park displays, the community will be invited to learn more about Dia de Muertos by connecting online for a panel discussion focusing on the significance of the holiday. This online event will feature speakers from multiple backgrounds and perspectives.

November 1st & 2nd, 5:00pm - 7:00pm

We are teaming up with the Mexican Consulate to serve Pan de Muerto and hot cocoa outside in the park from 5:00pm – 7:00pm on November 1st – 2nd while viewing  the altars in the Lobby windows, watching virtual Dia de Muertos performances on the JUMPotron, and enjoying the Community Remembrance Display.
