Head to Olvera Street and join the inaugural Carrera de los Muertos / Run of the Dead. While this 5k fun run takes place on Halloween, this is not a Halloween event. Day of the Dead focuses on celebrating the memories of loved ones that have passed on. Traditions include face painting to resemble skulls, decorating altars with bright orange marigold flowers, candles, photos and other memorabilia. There will be face painters on-site and an official Runners Altar for participants to decorate! The start line is in front of historic El Pueblo, the birthplace of Los Angeles. The course travels towards Chinatown and out towards Los Angeles Historic Park. After crossing the LA River, all participants return back to Olvera Street for Dia de los Muertos festival!
