Every year people from all over the San Diego region (including Tijuana, Mexico) gather in Old Town, San Diego to celebrate the lives of those since gone. Dia De Los Muertos (aka Day of the Dead) is a festive Mexican tradition celebrated on November 1 & 2 of each year. I’ve always loved the spirit that goes into this holiday and was finally able to check out the festivities this year. Here’s what went down on November 2nd, 2017!
