Family Friendly Fiesta del Día de los Muertos

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is observed by many Latino cultures to commemorate and honor loved ones who have passed on. Building altars and adorning them with colorful paper flowers, decorating sugar skulls, parades of lavishly dressed skeletons and candles, are a few special ways to remember those we have loved. Officially, The Day of the Dead begins October 31st - November 2nd, but in the Bay Area events are spread throughout October and early November.
