The Graveyard at South Jordan Manor is six years old this year and has grown to become bigger than ever. This event has become a neighborhood tradition in the Oquirrh Park Neighborhood of South Jordan. On Halloween a cast of actors dressed as the living dead from all points in time haunt the neighborhood and create an incredibly haunting atmosphere. On top of that, the ensemble performs in a flash mob-esque style, Halloween favorites such as Michael Jackson’s Thriller. The event draws more and more people every Halloween, and has gained huge momentum this year. Our director/Producer, Michael Jorgensen, is joining us for a sixth year now, and the cast continues to grow featuring many of the neighborhood kids and local performers ranging in ages from 8-23. The event also hope to draw in hundreds of spectators this Halloween season. With such a huge community turn out not only in the cast but also as spectators, the company of The Graveyard at South Jordan Manor is also doing a fundraiser for the Huntsman Cancer Institute on Halloween called the Haunt for Hope. 100% of all the proceeds will be donated towards cancer treatment and cancer research.

Day of the Dead Celebration
November 2, 2013
6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Day of the Dead Altar Display
October 28 – November 7, 2013
Mon – Thurs, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and by arrangement
On November 2, the community altar will be on display at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center, along with many activities and events, including traditional Mexican food, music, dance ceremonies, games and paper flower making/sugar skull decorating for kids. Bring the whole family to experience this one-of-a-kind celebration of Mexican heritage and culture here in Utah.
The Day of the Dead is actually a two-day Mexican holiday celebrated November 1-2. For two days and nights families and friends gather together with other community members to pay respects to and remember the dead. Altars are constructed at gravesites or in homes with food, beverages and other items once owned or appreciated by the deceased. It is believed that for these two nights – one for children; the other for adults – the spirits of the dead return to be with family and friends. The more elaborate the altar, the more likely the dead will return to be with loved ones once again. Objects representing the person in real life are used to entice the spirit to travel great lengths to return to earth, if only for one night. Day of the Dead bread, flowers, water, mirrors, sugar skulls, candles, skeletons and Catholic iconography are traditional items used as part of Day of the Dead altars. The rituals and altar construction date back to the ancient Aztecs, ancestors to Mexicans.
Both events are free and open to the public
