The biggest "Day of the Dead" event every year in California is held for 12 hours at the Hollywood cemetery and features live events and music and food, booths, installations, and altars. What makes this event different (other than Location) is that so many of the attendees are actually participating via costume and face painting, the ceremonial use of makeup to participate in ritual is one of our oldest traditions, this modern version of which draws more than 30,000 people every year, to celebrate the lives and mourn the passing of those who are dearly departed.
