During the event, there will also be a space for you to bring photos of your departed doggies, traditionally known as an altar. Participants are invited to bring offerings to the altar in the form of your dog’s favourite food, treats, toys etc. Dogs were believed to guide the ancestral spirits to their final resting place in the afterlife. Therefore, all items donated to the altar will go to the Guide Dogs, as they guide living spirits to where they need to go. This event is not part of the Dia de los Muertos public holiday, which has significant religious meaning. Many traditions will not be happening at this event.
