Day of the Dead at Hollywood Forever.

This is one of our favorite events, not just during Halloween, but of the entire year. Hollywood Forever Cemetery hosts the largest Day of the Dead celebration in California, with art exhibitions, dance rituals, musical performances, children's arts and crafts projects and food vendors aplenty. You'll see altars to the dead created by community artists, and can either watch or participate in the calaca (skeleton) costume contest. In honor of the fest's 15th anniversary, this year's theme is quinceañera. It's sure to be a spectacular display, as always. And there's something to be said for a Halloween event that respects and celebrates the very (and often forgotten) roots of the holiday.
