Thanks to the great folks at Target for underwriting this post. As always, my comments, opinions, and love for celebrating Day of the Dead are my own.

Today is Day of the Dead, the colorful celebration when we remember our departed. If you are looking for something to do, check out these 7 ideas for things to do with your kids here. You can also check out these Mexican Altares de Muerto, and a wonderful photo essay featuring the flowers of Day of the Dead, with photos taken by my son from our visit to a cemetery on Day of the Dead in Mexico.

In celebration of Day of the Dead, let me share some pictures I took last night at a fun event organized by Target in Los Angeles at LA Live. It was a wonderful combination of Halloween and Day of the Dead with tons of activities for the whole family.


Decorating sugar skulls and pumpkins is always fun.

But without a doubt the Catrina Salon was the most popular activity, at least while I was there. The was a line, but the results were well worth it.
