A little anxious to celebrate Halloween early? You're in luck, because today the Arizona Historical Society is commemorating the Day of the Dead, an age-old Mexican tradition. this year offers an altar of flowers, historic photographs and musical instruments to the souls of musicians. The festivities begin at 10 a.m. and run till 4 p.m., so come to the main museum of the Arizona Historical Society for an afternoon of spooky tradition.
If it's a little too early for you to celebrate Halloween, you can still party with tailgating on the Mall. The Wildcats will be playing the Bruins tomorrow, so come out to get pumped up a day early. The partying begins at 4 p.m. This isn't like tailgating for NFL games though, so leave the beer at home. Give Danielle DeVern a call at 621-8400 if you've got questions (or complaints about the lack of beer).
You've been bombarded by enough election campaigning in the media, so you'll be happy to hear that Rep. Jim Kolbe's visit to campus today is completely void of election-related topics. Of course he'll still be promoting his own agenda, but what else would you expect from a politician. Kolbe's talk in the Center for Creative Photography will focus on the activities of the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice and State, on which he serves. He will discuss some of the issues affecting foreign affairs, particularly as it relates to international understanding and education through exchange programs. The lecture starts at 4 p.m. Call Carol Bender at 621-9348 for more information.
You've seen the images of hands tattooed with H-A-T-E and L-O-V-E across the fingers, but do you have any idea where it comes from? Well we do, and you can find out too. We'll give you a clue, it originates in Charles Laughton's film "Night of the Hunter," but can you identify which character sports the tattoos? Find out tonight at 7:30 p.m. when the film screens in the Modern Languages Auditorium. Give Charles Scruggs a call at 621-3527 for all the details.
It's better than the street performers you see on the streets of San Francisco and New York. And it's in a better location. It's STOMP, and it's playing at Centennial Hall tonight. This eclectic mix of percussionists use everything from matchboxes and brooms to Zippo lighters and hubcaps to create an utterly unique sound. Come see what all the noise is about at 8 p.m. tonight. Tickets cost between $28 and $40 and can be purchased by calling the Centennial Hall box office at 621-3341.
Having trouble finding a Halloween party to attend tonight? Well we know that would never happen, but maybe you want to try something different. Yuma Hall is sponsoring a haunted dungeon at 8 p.m. and 12 a.m. tonight. You only need to donate two cans of food and you're admitted free if charge.
