Saturday, Nov. 1st is Dia de los Muertos, the day when families celebrate their loved ones who have passed away, and when Hollywood Forever Cemetery opens its doors for its 15th annual festival. This year’s theme is Quinceañera and includes performances by La Santa Cecilia and Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea.
It starts at noon and ends at midnight. We went early last year because it can get crowded and because kids 8 years old and under are free before 4 p.m. Adult tickets are $20. If you’ve never been, you should check it out. There’s beautiful altars, fun entertainment, and delicious food to buy.
Here are some pictures from last year.
