DAY OF THE DEAD NOV 2, 2013

If you haven’t been to Olvera Street’s Day of the Dead celebration in Los Angeles, check it out.

This Saturday is the finale of the Mexican holiday of Day of the Dead that celebrates the remembrance of family and friends who have died.  It’s a colorful and festive event with music, dancers and sipping on margaritas in and outdoor café. 

MetroLink Train takes you from OC to Union Station in Los Angeles that’s across the street from the festivities.  China Town is a few blocks away if you are up for a double header.

$10 METROLINK WEEKEND PASS (Amtrak cost more)

The train leaves and returns from a dozen OC stops from San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo, Irvine, Tustin, Santa Ana, Orange, Anaheim, Fullerton and Buena Park.   http://www.metrolinktrains.com/schedules/line/name/Orange%20County/service_id/1152.html

Last year’s event was a lot of fun and I’m planning to go again this Saturday.  Photos & video from Day of the Dead 2012.

PS-  The train pass is good for the weekend so you could travel to Cape Cod Village in Oceanside on Sunday!
