Dia de Los Muertos

The Day Of The Dead is a traditional Mexican holiday celebrated on the 31st October, 1st & 2nd of November. A time where friends and family gather to remember those who have past. On this holiday Sangria is the drink of choice and sugar skulls are used to honour the past.

Although this may seem dark in nature, it is very much a celebration of life. We intend to honour the origin of the festival and bring it to you with the addition of the river lifestyle.

Combining halloween, wake-boarding, camping, live music and local food- it is going to create one awesome weekend not to be missed. This year we are having some amazing shows on offer. Hopefully, next weekend, you really are going to feel like you will be in Mexico at The Day Of The Dead.

Popular mariachi band, The Three Amigoes Roving, will be playing along with gorgeous Brazilian samba dancers. It will be an unforgettable and unmissable event full of live entertainment. Prizes are up for grabs for best dressed, best photos and the biggest carp. It is next weekend, the 31st of October so get your costumes ready!!
