“The Suns will celebrate Latino culture with a night dedicated to Dia de los Muertos; first 5,000 fans age 21 years and older will receive a silicone pint cup, courtesy of Hornitos Tequila.” read the press release. Of course, the hugely popular Mexican holiday is a joyful celebration of life and death. Despite the debate over its exact origins, it remains a day that brings family and friends together, to honor and remember their deceased loved ones.
Traditionally, on Dia de los Muertos, an ofrenda or altar is built in homes, public spaces and of course or cemeteries. There, people come together to celebrate the lives of those their family and friends who have passed on. In keeping with the practice, the Suns have commissioned a community alter from local artist Felipa Lerma, which will be on display during the pregame buildup. Fans have been encouraged to bring photos of their deceased loved ones, which can then be placed on the ofrenda. It doesn’t stop there either, as per reports, there will be plenty of Dia de los Muertos related events throughout the night. Fans will even be able to take photos with famous La Catrina – one of the day’s most iconic symbols.
In honor of Dia de los Muertos, Felipa Lerma designed a community altar that honors our Suns familia who have passed away. We invite all of our fans in attendance to celebrate their muertitos by bringing & placing photos of them on the altar.

Where the entertainment is concerned, it promises to be special. Alicia Blanco will perform the national anthem in Spanish, which in case you’re wondering, is the first time any professional team has done that. As for the halftime show, Mariachi Rubor – the best all-female Mariachi band in Arizona – will take things up a notch. To be honest, it sounds like a good time.
