[DANCE OF THE DEAD] Contrary to what Wal-Mart would lead you to believe, Halloween wasn’t always about Reese’s Cups shaped like pumpkins and matching superhero costumes for the whole family plus dog. The holiday has tread a widely divergent path since its historic inception as a pagan ritual for the end of the harvest season. Dia de los Muertos, on the other hand, is a time-honored celebration that has remained firmly rooted in Mexican tradition. The Crystal Ballroom’s authentic celebration of the dead begins with a procession from SW Clay Street and Park Avenue, which threads its way downtown and up to the historic venue where face painters, Aztec dancers and rhythmic beats await. Tiburones, a Portland-based music project joining Y La Bamba’s Luz Elena Mendoza and the Shaky Hands’ Nick Delffs, headlines the musical festivities. Thinking about dead folks has never been more fun.
