The Militant just loves stumbling into cool random events around Los Angeles. Right when the Militant was done with his research mission on Sunday in the SGV for his upcoming SGV Week series (as selected by you, the readers!) , while on his way back to The Militant Compound, he passed by a banner right before the Los Angeles River bridge on North Main Street in Lincoln Heights that read "Muertomania" and a gathering of several people in a canopy-lined parking lot.

Hmm...instinctively, he decided to do a U-turn.

Some pretty badass Dia de los Muertos-themed art at Muertomania!
He didn't regret it. It's a small Dia de los Muertos-themed festival at the Solidarity Ink print shop and gallery featuring holiday-themed arts, crafts, food and lucha libre matches! (You gotta love the Dia de los Muertos/Wrestlemania portmanteau moniker...) It's a total local Eastside event, small but apparently very well-organized with lots of stuff going on. MILITANT APPROVED! Definitely check it out if you can today - it's on until 10 p.m., do if you're reading this on Sunday afternoon, get on over there!

Sunday, October 30, 12-10 p.m.

1749 North Main St.
Lincoln Heights
Pose with these life-sized luchador figures!
Mr. La Cucaracha himself, Lalo Alcaraz in the house! Ask him to sign some of his artwork!
