DAY OF THE DEAD CANDLE LIGHTING (O)
Help observe Dia de los Muertos! Meet in the Plaza at 5:30--The candle lit procession starts up the hill around 6:00. The way is lit by luminarias and is quite spectacular. Come early to visit an art gallery exhibit set up in the old Pacific Saloon just the the Day of the Dead. Join the town after the procession for refreshments in the Golden Stag Hall.
