The people who plan to attend next month’s Dia De Los Muertos celebration organized by Self Help Graphics and Art won’t have to worry about having enough elbow room or finding a parking spot on side streets. What they will have to worry about is making sure they head for the right location. For the first time in more than 10 years, the Dia de Los Muertos celebration will be held away from the Self Help Graphics building at the corner of Cesar Chavez and Gage Avenue in East Los Angeles. Instead, this year’s Day of the Dead event will be held at the East Los Angeles Civic Center on 3rd Street near Mednik Avenue. The idea is create more room for the estimated 5,000 to 8,000 revelers who attend what organizers call the longest running Day of the Dead celebration in the county. Read more in Eastsider on the Go.
