This morning, local artist Octavio Acosta and Dennis Riel from Los Bagels joined us on KHUM to discuss Dia de los Muertos.  Dennis and Octavio spoke about the history of Dia de los Muertos, the importance of celebrating locally and shared what the holiday means to them.  Some will begin celebrating tomorrow, Tuesday or Wednesday. You can hear the conversation here:
