Break out the face paint, rhinestones, glitter and flowers because it’s every Chipster’s (Chicanx Hipster) favorite time of the year, Dia De Los Muertos season; and what better place to celebrate it than in SanTana, OC’s most chingón city. Now in its second year, Viva La Vida! is throwing a huge Day of the Dead festival with traditional Mexican altars, artisanal goods and food! Dust off your dancing shoes and get down to local tunes from Very Be Careful, ¡Aparato!, The Hurricanes, China Woman, Watch For Horses and Mariachi De Oro. Also watch as colorful trajes tipicos swirl around in unison during a folklórico performance by Relámpago Del Cielo. Come out and “celebrate life and lifting up the memories of our loved ones.”
