Join Día de los Muertos in Old Town San Diego. In Mexico and other Latin American countries, this holiday is considered to be one of the most important holidays of the year. This event celebrates the history, culture and heritage of the San Diego region and is believed that the unity between life and death is celebrated when families come together and offer hospitality to the spirits of their loved ones.
Old Town San Diego’s Día de los Muertos also holds a traditional procession each year on 2. This is a happy, festive, very artistic, and visually stimulating celebration, which is not in any way to be confused with Halloween. The event consists of three major themes: Remembrance, Community and Celebration.
Visit over 40 altars of remembrance presented in both traditional and contemporary ways, including a public altar where you are encouraged to participate by adding your own mementos and photos.
