Old Town San Diego's Día de los Muertos is a celebration of the history, culture, and heritage of the region that honors one of its most important holidays. It is at this time that the spirits of loved ones who have died return to earth to celebrate with friends and family, during this happy, festive, very artistic, and visually stimulating time, which is not in any way to be confused with Halloween.
Traditional and contemporary Día de los Muertos altars will be set up throughout the park and greater Old Town community for visitors to enjoy. In various museums in the park, there will also be altars commemorating the people who lived and worked in Old Town during the 1800s. There will be arts & crafts, food, music and more at this family event.
