Hollywood Forever commemorates the Day of the Dead with this 13th annual Dia de los Muertos celebration, which is billed as the largest such event in the country. This year being 2012, the celebration will explore the ancient Mayan gods and calendar.
From the event website:
We will observe the millenary custom with altar settings, a procession, incense, food and rituals, from cultures around the world. Children will enjoy and learn more about this tradition through storytelling, the making of the altars, face painting, dancing, and more.
For an in-depth look at the event, check out our photo gallery from last year's celebration.
