From October 31 through November 2nd, Dia de los Muertos is being celebrated throughout Mexico,  Latin America and in the US in honor of those who have passed. It’s a celebration of life and death with traditional festivities that bring communities together. (It’s also Disney-popular now thanks to Coco. Suele suceder.) In Chicago, there are multiple celebrations happening across the city so we’ve put together this list of events, for November 1 – 4, along with additional information for further learning.
