The First Fridays Art Walk will celebrate its 7th anniversary with “Day of the Dead” in Bixby Knolls. Businesses will participate in an altar contest and host themed face painting, music and sugar-skull coloring in honor of the holiday. The event will also include a “living altar,” a community photo-mural project at 4320 Atlantic Ave., and a community altar where attendees may honor loved ones who have passed.

Eigth District Councilmember Al Austin’s “Council on Your Corner” will be set up at Atlantic Avenue and Carson Street to meet and greet attendees.
The Big Red Bus will be available to transport attendees from venue to venue via designated stops at the participating businesses.
