The LA Flower District, located in the LA Fashion District, will be taking part in the celebration of Día de los Muertos. Marigolds can currently be found throughout the Flower District at almost every flower shop.
The Cempasúchil marigold, a bright orange flower, is traditionally used to decorate altars, or ofrendas, commemorating the dearly departed during the Día de los Muertos holiday. Día de los Muertos is celebrated annually on November 1-2 in Mexico and some other countries. It is a day to celebrate the rebirth of lost loved ones with colorful altars, candy skulls, food, flowers, parades and parties.
