The event will feature a performance at 6 p.m. by Ballet Folklorico Celestial, a Texas A&M student organization dedicated to preserving and promoting traditional Hispanic dance. The group also will host an informational table, providing insights into the significance of El Día de los Muertos and the elements of this two-day holiday.

Another Aggie student organization, Latino Logradores, will share its mission in helping connect first-year students with available resources, and offer attendees an opportunity to learn more about the group.

Traditional Hispanic dishes will be served, including pollo en salsa de chipotle con crema, papas con chorizo y queso oaxaca, fideo loco and elote esquite con pico de gallo. An aguas frescas station will be available, offering beverages with a twist of traditional flavors.

Baked goods, such as conchas, marranitos and shortbreads, will be imported from a local bakery in Bryan, Texas, La Espiga Dorada. Additionally, a selection of baked items from Bimbo Bakery will be available, providing a taste of authentic Mexican flavors.
