Geoanna Santana

We are creeping it real downtown this Halloween season! October is almost over and if you haven’t picked out your pumpkins, watched any scary movies, or had any cavities from eating too much candy… you still have a chance. Trick-or-treat yourself this season and head to #DowntownSac to get in all your last-minute celebrations and costumes before October 31!

Souls of the City: Día de Los Muertos Walk  (Now – November 2)

Sol Collective and the Sacramento History Museum and Alliance are proud to invite the community to once again celebrate Día de Los Muertos at the Old Sacramento Waterfront. In order to keep our communities safe and healthy from COVID-19 this year, they are offering an alternative experience to the annual Souls of the City: Día de los Muertos ​festival.

You can visit the installations displayed throughout several buildings at the Old Sacramento Waterfront including Heywood, Fat City, Lady Adams, Fratt, Tower Garage, and many more. Most of the altars, installations, and artwork will be indoors and on display through the outside windows. The exhibit will be available for the public to view from now through November 6.
