June 5: Blue Hen 5K

University of Delaware graduates planning to attend Alumni Weekend are encouraged to register for the annual Blue Hen 5K walk and run, which will be held Sunday morning, June 5.

There will be a live Latin band, Orquesta Insaciable, and traditional food.

The theme for the event is "Dia de Los Muertos," or "Day of the Dead," a holiday acknowledging and honoring deceased loved ones in celebration, rather than mourning. It is a loving ritual, full of joy and remembrance allowing the dead to return to their earthly homes and visit with their loved ones. Its origin is traced back to Mexico and has spread and been celebrated around the world. This event is traditionally celebrated Nov. 1 and 2.
