Description
At this time of year, when the veil between the living and dead is thought to be at its most diaphanous, take part in the ninth year of the Dìa de los Muertos Celebration. Gather in the heart of Downtown Berkeley on Kittredge Street and Harold Way on Friday, November 2, 5-10PM to celebrate and remember those who have passed on.

The event hosts food booths and trucks, a wine and beer garden at Maison Bleue, free skeletal face painting, and art and craft vendors. There are DIY art projects for kids and adults. Musical entertainers make the evening magical. Costumes and traditional Dìa de los Muertos papier maché giant heads are encouraged.

This year several altars will be created by local artists. The public is invited to bring photos or stories of loved ones, candles, breads, or flowers to add to the large community ofrenda. A blessing of the altar is followed by a sidewalk candle light procession through the area along a path of strewn marigold petals.

The Dia de los Muertos Celebration is sponsored by the Downtown Berkeley Association, Berkeley Community Media, East Bay Loop, East Bay Express and Yelp. Take BART to the Downtown Berkeley station/Allston Way exit. Free admission.

We put on real Badenov events -- mostly free street festivals, art & culture events, business socials, theme parties, picnics or whatever else sounds fun. We’ve got the scoop on the local scene, where to go and what to do -- we're real Ms. Know-It-Alls. We promise to Do-Right by you!

Yes, my real last name is Bullwinkel! It’s been a ton of fun my whole life and I bring that along to any event that I produce. I’ve been throwing parties since I was a kid – ours was the house where all of the parties happened in town, until our pool caved in from too many people doing cannonballs off the side one night!

It is not a fractured fairy tale that I was a professional ballerina for many years. So I bring an artistic sensibility to every event I produce. My biggest thrill is providing a format so your guests can be creative in a way they never thought possible. This makes my events a big hit! And memorable!

I can help you market your business district, even if it is in Moosylvania or during Rocky times! I have a background in community and economic development from my time as the Executive Director of a large merchant association in Berkeley and Albany, CA. There, I installed a Business Improvement District and built the Solano Avenue Stroll, the East Bay’s largest street festival. The Stroll was designated a National Local Legacy and is housed in the Library of Congress. I've produced lots of other events, including the 4th of July for the City of Berkeley complete with fireworks. Some of my past and present events include the Bay Area Book Festival, Berkeley Festival of the Arts, Berkeley Jazz Festival on Telegraph, Pacific Pinball Exposition, Persian New Year Festival, Spice of Life Festival, Berkeley Tree Lighting Ceremony, Berkeley Celebration of Youth Arts, Chocolate & Chalk Art Festival, Dìa de los Muertos, Doof-a-Palooza, Center Street Summer Cinema, Food, Fashion & Wine, Snow Day in the Gourmet Ghetto & the Rockridge & Holidays on Fourth St.

So even if your name isn’t Rocky, give a call… make that a moose call so we can really hear it!
