Friday and Saturday It’s your last opportunity to peruse the annual Día de los Muertos exhibit at the Bath House Cultural Center at White Rock Lake, 521 E. Lawther. Vibrantly colored skeletal faces, all teeth and wide eyes, eerily playful, a visually-striking celebration of lives that have ended — Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, is a fascinating homage to those who have passed on. As always, the exhibit is free to the public.
