4-8 p.m. Mon.-Fri., 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sat.-Sun. Oct. 25-Nov. 2. For over 30 years, the merchants on Olvera Street have celebrated Dia de los Muertos. The nine-night 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 the ceremony. The Novenario Procession will happen every evening at 7 p.m., with a traditional Mayan blessing occurring before and afterwards. The festivities also include Aztec dancers, the Parade of “Living Muertos,” the Aztec ceremonial blessing known as Grupo Tartalejos, and traditional food, like free sweet bread and champurrado. Entertainment during the week starts at 5 p.m. goes all day on the weekend. Calavera face painters will be on hand Oct. 27-28 (10 a.m.-8 p.m.) and Nov. 1-2 (3-8 p.m.); there is a fee for the face painting. Oct. 27 also holds the Carrera de Los Muertos 5K; visit losmuertos5k.com/events/los-angeles/ for registration information.
