Speaking of el dia de los muertos, here are some places worthy of checking out because they offer classes and so much more regarding this important day:
1. The Folk Tree in Pasadena
2. Olvera Street in the downtown Los Angeles area
3. Self-Help Graphics in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles
