Do It. Olvera Street Day of the Dead.

All this week, celebrations for Dia de los Muertos are scheduled to be held at Olvera Street, including various exhibit and entertainment at night, including alters for loved ones passed.

People put up marigolds for their dead relatives as a remembrance, and make pan muerto -- a special kind of sweet bread bigger then a basketball -- and put up pictures, notes and letters, and jewelry from their family members.
This is one of my favorite holidays, and comes right after Halloween. Celebrations will be going on through Nov. 2

Olvera Steet is located downtown, across from Union Station.
