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.

Dia de los Muertos Festival Days will take place Oct. 28-29 from 10am-8pm, and Nov. 1-2 from 4-8pm, featuring live entertainment, traditional dancers, face painting and family activities. The nightly Novenario Procession will be held on Olvera Street from Oct. 25- Nov. 2 beginning at 7 p.m. The colorful community altars will be on display in the Plaza Oct. 28 - Nov. 2.
