Thousands of people gathered downtown Saturday afternoon for an annual Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead celebration that has mushroomed in size over the past nine years, according to the O.C. Register.
The event was masterminded by Jackie and Rudy Cordova, owners of Calacas and the new Calacas Cafe. This was the Ninth Annual Noche de Altares event. Check out Calacas’ Facebook page for pictures of yesterday’s event.
