Several mid-Michigan organizations are presenting an exhibit for Day of the Dead.

The exhibit includes 16 displays created by community members to honor and invite various deceased relatives, friends, or important figures to visit.

Day of the Dead has been celebrated around the world and in Mexico for thousands of years. It's traditionally celebrated for two days, Nov. 1 and 2, and is believed to be when deceased family and friends come back to earth to visit.

The exhibit takes place on Friday, Nov. 2 from 4 to 8 p.m. It is also running Saturday from 1 to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m.

It's taking place at Casa de Rosado, 204 E. Mount Hope, in Lansing. In addition to the exhibit, visitors can have their face painted with traditional Sugar Skull designs.
