Saturday, October 27, 2012 Pit Bull Energy Products welcomes the souls of ancestors, at the legendary Hollywood Forever Cemetery’s 13th Annual “Day of the Dead” cultural festival.
Hollywood, CA – Pit Bull Energy Drinks (The Official Energy Drink of the U.S. Military) gears up to rock the grave yard at this weekend’s “Day of the Dead” festivities as one, of the event’s major sponsors. The living will converge onto the Hollywood Forever Cemetery estate (on Santa Monica @ Gower) as they do each year, in celebration and in honoring the long-awaited souls tribute to loved ones that have passed onto the after-life. Dating back 3,000 years, “Dia De Los Muertos – Day of the Dead” is rooted in ancient Meso-America and is still practiced among indigenous peoples, Mestizo and Hispanics in the Americas. The lore’s belief is that souls of the deceased return to earth and commune with the living each year through altars made up by family members. Modern day altars are created and adorned with candles, incense, patron saints, photographs, favorite foods and artifacts left behind by the departed, as offerings. Bright Orange-yellow Marigold flowers and peddles are symbols of the dead, along with painted clay skeletons and beaded sugar-confection skulls that evokes the liveliness, wit and humor of the deceased’s spirit. Hollywood’s “Day of the Dead” is most certainly not a morbid or melancholy occasion. It’s just the opposite! This is familia…,” says Diane Vara Marketing Consultant and spokesperson for Pit Bull Energy Products. “This is a time to be energized, to be joyful and to embrace the cycle of life. That’s why Pit Bull Energy is participating as a sponsor.”
The Pit Bull Energy Team will be on hand holding down 2 booths packed with their “Voted Best Tasting” popular Blueberry Pomegranate (regular and sugar free) energy drinks. Booth number one will be in the Chandler Gardens section, of the premises; while the other location will be near the Cathedral Mausoleum; close to the main stage. Live performance by world-renowned headlining super-group Ozomatli (named U.S. Department of Cultural Ambassadors) is scheduled to set-off the evening’s vibe – “Cumbia De Los Muertos!”
Hollywood Forever “Day of the Dead” is the largest cultural festival of its kind, in California. There’ll be dancing, food, fun and artisan exhibits. Approximately 300,000 participants are scheduled to attend the 2012 Hollywood Forever “Day of the Dead” Saturday, October 27, 2012 from 12Noon to 12AM.
