The Unity Council’s vibrant Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Festival returns for its twelfth consecutive year. The largest single-day event of its kind in the U.S., 100,000 people from around the Bay Area are expected to partake in this colorful celebration of Latin American culture. Stretched over nine city blocks, the free event will feature four stages, live Latin music from top regional and local performers, traditional dance, hands-on activities for children, a delectable array of food, hand-made specialty goods and more. In following with this year’s theme of “Honoring The Memories”, twenty-two altars created by professional artists and community groups will be on display.
