For over 30 years, the merchants on Olvera Street have celebrated Dia de los Muertos. The celebration has evolved to incorporate the pre-Columbian, Aztec, Mayan, and Catholic rituals surrounding death. Each night, a vibrant and colorful procession sets the stage for our ceremony. The nightly novenario procession includes an indigenous blessing ceremony in remembrance of departed loved ones with beautifully decorated altars, exhibits, and entertainment. Community Altars will be on display from October 28 through November 2.
