Day of the Dead is upon us! No, this is not a zombie uprising, but a wonderful Mexican holiday celebrated on November first and second, based on the ancient traditions of Mexico's indigenous peoples who believed that the souls of the dead return each year to visit their families. There will be music and dancing and sugar skulls. Free admission.
