Dia De Los Muertos Comes To Life At Bazaar Del Mundo And Casa Guadalajara

Old Town’s Casa Guadalajara and Bazaar del Mundo Shops are celebrating loved ones, Saturday and Sunday, October 28 and 29 for Dia De Los Muertos – or “Day of the Dead” – the traditional Mexican holiday that honors friends and family members who have passed on.

Old Town Dia de los Muertos

Dia De Los Muertos pays tribute to loved ones through elaborately decorated altars, called “ofrendas,” with treasured items from their lives and traditional elements, such as marigold flowers, candles, water, bread and salt, and their favorite foods and spirits.

Old Town Dia de los Muertos

Throughout the weekend, Casa Guadalajara’s iconic fountain will be turned into altars for guests to enjoy and there will be free Día de los Muertos face painting on October 28 and 29 from 1PM-7PM in the restaurant. Guests will delight in performances from Casa Guadalajara’s world-class mariachi band – all in painted skeleton faces on Saturday from 5:30PM–8:30PM, and Sunday from 4PM–8PM.

In the Bazaar del Mundo Shops, at 4133 Taylor St, San Diego, CA 92110, guests can peruse Día de los Muertos-themed  art, décor and collectibles and view elaborate altar in the courtyard.

Old Town Dia de los Muertos

Old Town Dia De Los Muertos festivities begin on Saturday with the Old Town Self-Guided Altar Tour. Begin at Bazaar del Mundo and Casa Guadalajara, then take a walking tour throughout Old Town to view more than 40 beautifully decorated altars. Guests may park for free across the street at Caltrans (all-day weekends) or take the trolley.
