Day of the Dead weekend at Ya Ya Yoga & Market in Spruce Pine

There are a number of Day of the Dead events at Ya Ya Yoga & Market (co-owned by Clay Clubber Anita Blackwell) this Friday and Saturday (October 28 and 29), including an art reception Friday evening from 7 - 9 pm.

From the facebook event page:

Our Day of the Dead weekend spans from an Art Reception Friday evening, to pumpkin carving, tarot readings, and barbeque at the Saturday farmer's market 10 am - 2 pm, to an Herbs of the Otherworld workshop Saturday afternoon from 3 - 5 pm.

We are participating in a time-old tradition (records of this holiday go back thousands and thousands of years) of honoring the time of year when the veil between spirit and physical is thinnest. We celebrate our ancestors and our own connection with spirit through harvest, altars, art, and celebration.

Art Reception & Prize Drawing for Artists, 7 - 9 pm
Our open-entry art show will culminate in this reception, with wine, cheese, altars, and a prize drawing for the artists. Share your reactions to the various pieces at "Response Stations".

Parkway Farmers Market, 10 am - 2 pm
Vendors will be in costume, pumpkin carving for children, barbeque and boiled peanuts! What a fun time!

Tarot Readings by Barbara Kahn, 12 - 5 pm
