The Day of the Dead celebration in Terlingua, TX, is a sacred gathering for many locals. Though tourists are interested in this celebration, they are asked to respect those who are remembering those loved ones who have passed. If you wish to take part in this event, please make sure you bring your own sense of worship, honor for your lost loved ones, and offerings for the dead.
