Fourth Annual Dia de Los Muertos Celebration @ Mesa Arts Center

When it comes to calacas and calveras – the Mexican skeletons and skulls of Dia de los Muertos – you can forget about being spooked. Instead, party it up with those who have departed.

Mesa Arts Center showcases an altar-building contest amidst all sorts of traditional fest foods and frivolity.

Sat., Oct. 30, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 31, 12-5 p.m., 2010
