DAY OF THE DEAD PIG ROASTOn Sunday from 4 - 9 p.m., Finn's Manor is calling on some voodoo magic to start a roaring fire for a Day of the Dead pig roast. Flor de Caña rum and cocktails will be provided by the talented bar staff at the Manor while Owlbear Barbecue will be roasting a 100-pound pig from Western Daughters Butcher Shoppe. Jamaican and Caribbean sides to accompany the pork will be provided by Island Peppapot Catering. It will be $12 a plate or $15 for all-you-can-eat.

BOTANIC GARDENS' DIA DE LOS MUERTOSThe crew at Denver Botanic Gardens knows better than most that death is a natural part of the cycle of life. In celebration of the dead, the Gardens will be open from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Sunday with a lineup of Dia de los Muertos activities ranging from face painting to Aztec dancing. Costumes are encouraged at this family-friendly event.
