Live music, art exhibitions, as well as community alters honoring the
deceased. These are just some of the sights and sounds that can be
experienced at this weekend’s Dia De Los Muertos festival at Pacoima
As part of the festival, five local restaurants and some local businesses along Van Nuys blvd will be participating in an outdoor dining experience happening in simulation with the main events at City Hall. That means that instead of purchasing food at City Hall, the restaurants will be selling outside their location. And you want to check it out: each of the seven sites will have calavera (skull) and altar displays set-up at their storefronts. All of which are handcrafted from artists from Pacoima and surrounding communities.
Here is map of where you can find the altars.

Participating restaurants include, Antonio’s Tacos & Kobob, Birriería Rosamaria, El Indio Restaurant, Lenchita’s, as well as Myke’s Café. Additionally, food vouchers for participating restaurants will be available to the general public at City Hall, along with a guide map of their locations, and other points of interests on the boulevard. The event hours are scheduled for 1 to 9pm on Saturday, in addition to 1 to 5pm on Sunday.
