San Francisco’s Dia de los Muertos Procession and Festival of Alters

San Francisco’s Dia de los Muertos Procession and Festival of Alters is tonight in San Francisco’s Mission District.  If you haven’t had a chance to attend the festival it is a dark and magical event full of candle light, parade, reflection, community, costumes and handmade alters that honor and remember the dead.  The San Francisco Marigold Project which helps organize the event puts it this way: “In San Francisco, Day of the Dead has been celebrated since the early 70s with art, music, performances and a walking procession, which help us contemplate our existence and mortality — a moment to remember deceased friends and family, and our connections beyond our immediate concerns.”

Day of the Dead Procession:
Meet at 22nd and Bryant, 7pm.

Day of the Dead Festival of Altars:
Garfield Park, 26th and Harrison, 6pm-11pm
