Anaheim’s all-new Day of the Dead-inspired eatery, Calaca Mamas Cantina is celebrating Halloween and Dia de los Muertos from October 30th to November 2nd and inviting everyone to join in on the magical celebrations!
Calaca Mamas is kicking off the spooky celebration on Sunday, October 30th, with face painting for guests from 10:00AM-12:00PM & 4:30PM-6:30PM plus balloon art from 11AM-9PM.
Then, on Halloween (Monday, October 31st), from 1PM-5PM guests can come in costume to the restaurant to enjoy festive balloon art, face painting, and trick or treating!
Additionally, on November 1st from 4PM-8PM and November 2nd from 4PM-9PM dining guests can enjoy balloon art, face painting and a special performance by the Grammy Award-winning, Mariachi Divas, who perform frequently at the Disneyland Resort!
Crafts will also be available for kids and families to create themed mementos to take home and mark the Day-of-the-Dead celebration!
In addition to all the fun, Calaca Mamas will be serving Atole– a Mexican drink that is traditionally served at Dia de Los Muertos celebrations in remembrance of those who have passed on.
The Day of the Dead-themed restaurant’s owners, Angela and Mariam El Haj, are second-generation restaurateurs with a passion for the food industry and a deep-rooted love for Mexican food and culture. The sisters’ love for bringing families together while surrounded by delicious food culminated in the opening of Calaca Mamas Cantina, which celebrates the core themes of family, comfort, fun, and great Mexican-inspired cuisine. Inside the restaurant, guests will find an ofrenda that further celebrates their love for family. To honor their Disneyland neighbor, a photo of Walt Disney can also be found in the ofrenda, too!
