Hornitos’ ghost town vibe makes it a perfect place to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos/All Souls Day. Each year, Hornitos hosts visitors from far & wide for its annual celebration on November 2nd. After meeting in the plaza (where face paint and costumes are not uncommon) observers follow with a candlelight procession a short distance up the hill to historic St. Catherine’s Church and cemetery. A stirring way to pay respects to those who came before in a setting unlike any other. Festivities begin close to dusk.
