We believe events like Dia de los Muertos educates the community about Latino culture, encourages diversity and fosters a sense of communality among people from different backgrounds. Hispanic population reaches a 23% in Washoe County and 27% in the State of Nevada, which explains the enormous increase in attendees that this event has been experiencing in the past 3 years. Approximately 300 people attend this event last year alone and we expect that number to increase.
