The City of Los Angeles and Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez are presenting an extended “Dia de los Muertos” drive-through experience honoring those who have passed from COVID-19. Beginning Nov. 1 and running through Nov. 15, 2020, a “Dia de los Muertos” altar will be on display at Pacoima City Hall.
Los Angeles City Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez explains the history of “Dia de los Muertos” and this year’s special celebration: “Every year, our Latino community celebrates Dia de los Muertos — a holiday to remember and pay homage to those who are no longer with us. Traditionally, our office would close down Van Nuys Blvd in Pacoima and host a street festival. However, given the COVID-19 pandemic and our responsibility to socially distance, this year we will be creating an elaborately decorated altar at Pacoima City Hall to commemorate those who have passed.”
City of Pacoima City Hall is located at 13520 Van Nuys Blvd., Pacoima CA 91331.
