Tulsa's Day of the Dead or Dia de Los Muertos festival will be expanded to two days this year - held on November 1 and 2. The annual festival, which honors loved ones who have passed away, is held at Living Arts of Tulsa, 307 East Brady.

Day of the Dead is a celebration of the Hispanic tradition which centers around a display of altars decorated in remembrance of those we've lost. Spirits of the dead are remembered and believed to return to join the living who wait vigil by their altars, a news release states.
