While Halloween is all about partying, eating candy and buying kitschy decorations at Walgreens, Dia de los Muertos is about so much more. The annual two-day Latino holiday is a time to honor and celebrate one's ancestors through art, music, dance, food and...partying! Tonight is the Mission's Dia de los Muertos parade, where a few hundred people paint their faces like they're sugar skulls, serenely wander through the streets at night and end up in a sea of altars to the dead at Garfield Park.

Festival goers: The weekend weather forecast is looking a bit sub-summer, especially out on the moors of Golden Gate Park. We're still praying for sun, but if you need to warm up at the festival, pick up some hot chocolate from Charles Chocolates, some coffees from Philz and Ritual and perhaps some clam chowder from Woodhouse Fish Co (full food and beverage offerings here). And after the festival, you'll probably need a warm drink.
