It seems especially fitting to celebrate Dia de Los Muertos on Olvera Street. After all, the thoroughfare is part of El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument, the oldest part of Los Angeles, and the city center when it was under Mexican rule in the 19th century. From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 29-30, there will be folklorico dancers and puppet shows. A procession will take place both evenings beginning at 7 p.m. Can’t get there over the weekend? The colorful altars will be on display through Wednesday, Nov. 2.
