Get an early start on Dia de Los Muertos season this weekend when an exhibition of 25 Catrina costumes comes to El Pueblo de Los Angeles for just three days.
Starting today, October 6, and running through Sunday, October 8, “Siempre en mi Corazón” (“always in my heart”) was created by Lily Martinez. A native Angeleno who embraces her Mexican culture and finds great inspiration in Catrina, Martinez was a longtime Creative Director for Barbie.
Over the years, Lily painstakingly created more than two dozen striking Catrina costumes, including one intricate costume inspired by Tequila Cazadores, creators of tequila for more than 90 years and a sponsor of the event.
Pay homage to the spirit of Dia de Los Muertos at this event, FREE to the public, at the Gateway to Nature Center & Museum (130 Paseo de la Plaza, L.A. CA 90012). From there, it’s a short walk to historic LA attractions including Union Station, Olvera Street, Chinatown, and Philippe’s.
