East End Market is turning 2 today, and you can help this business celebrate its birthday by attending its Family Fiesta. The five-hour celebration is a day away from the Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos and on Halloween, though it’s early enough that you shouldn’t miss any quality trick-or-treating. The Market plans to have an artisan market in the courtyard where you can get your face painted, make a mask or create a flower crown. You can also listen to some Mexican rancheras and walk through a cemetery garden where you can try to find a dead person you can honor, as that’s what the Day of the Dead is actually about.
