Día de los Muertos in Chicago

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.
