One year I got to go to Hollywood Forever (yes, we have a cemetery in LA that's named "Hollywood Forever".. I know) and see their fantastic Day of the Dead celebration . They have beautiful alters, dancing, food and music- it's very joyous and beautiful. Since then, I haven't had a chance to go the past few years due to conflicts (mostly it's fallen on the same days as my parties), and whatnot, but this year it was today. Alas, I just found out now, half hour before it ends.
Maybe next year I'll make it back! Definitely something to see if you're in the LA area... anyway, here's my calaca bride in all her finery :)
