Dia de los Muertos @ Hollywood Forever
Hi All, who wants to witness this traditional Latin festival as only Hollywood Forever cemetery can celebrate it? Bring your cameras, cash, comfortable shoes and be ready to spend the day (or night) witnessing one of the most colorful pre-Halloween events in Los Angeles. Come in your most ghoulish costumes if you dare! Parking is the only drawback as it is difficult to find safe and inexpensive parking nearby. Be ready to walk a few blocks unless someone has some better suggestions. The event starts at 12 PM and ends at midnight. There is live music, performances, booths, food and drink aplenty. Here is some additional info and photos to last year's event:
The 13th annual "Dia de Los Muertos" will be held at Hollywood Forever, Los Angeles’s oldest memorial park, on October 27th, 2012. We invite you to join us this year as we welcome, honor and celebrate the memories of all our beloved souls on the grounds of the historic Hollywood Forever cemetery.
General Admission: $10 per person - (please bring exact change)
Seniors 65 and over free until 4pm
I will be there at 4 PM and stay late if anyone cares to join me. Let us meet near the main entrance facing Santa Monica Blvd. at the plaza. Parking can be a nightmare, so be prepared to walk a few blocks from the site. Please keep that in mind if you do plan to go. Dress comfortably as it can get a little chilly at night and wear walking shoes. I will wait for 20 minutes before proceeding. If you leave a message on the discussion board, I will check it and respond.
