The Lower Columbia Hispanic Council hosted a celebración del día de los muertos (Day of the Dead celebration) at the Barbey Maritime Center on Saturday. The Mexican and Central American tradition celebrates the spiritual journey of family and community members who have passed on. The council created a community alter for photos and tokens of loved ones and hosted Mi Cultura, a local folkloric dance group.
