October 31 has come and gone, but the Halloween vibe continues in this party-loving city, particularly in the Mission as folks celebrate Dia de los Muertos. On Saturday, the Mission District’s Garfield Park at 26th and Harrison will be the epicenter for all things muertos. The Festival of Altars is on display from 6 to 11 p.m. and a procession of colorful characters will wind through the Mission starting at 7 p.m. Details can be found on the Marigold Project’s website.

But first, there’s a free dance performance at noon at City Hall and starting tonight at 8:45 p.m. in Justin Herman Plaza, it’s the Friday Night “Midnight Rollers” Outdoor Roller Skate DJ Party.
