Hollywood Forever "Day of the Dead" 10/27

Hollywood Forever Cemetery will be having its 12th annual "Dia de los Muertos" celebration this Saturday, Oct. 27, from noon to midnight.

I have never been to it, but have heard great things about this event from friends who have gone. It isn''t just a festival, but also a meaningful event where people create beautiful and very personal altars for loved ones who have passed.

I haven't been either, but would really like to go. Pictures from it are amazing.

Thanks for posting.

We've got a busy day already planned for Saturday, but I'm hoping to find a couple of hours to head over there. If I do, I'll report back. It does sound like a great and authentically "LA" event for visitors as well as locals.

And a friend who created an altar last year, along with other friends and family gathered from around the state, found it both meaningful and celebratory of the lost loved one's life.

Site has crashed from too much traffic but it is indeed on today from 12-12, with tix available at the door for I think @ $10.
