Schedule for Day of the Dead events?

We haven't done it for the last couple of year, since I got sick and am more prone to weakness (it's a lot of work), but for years we've traditionally had a Dia de los Muertos get together at our house. We'd build an alter, and family and friends would bring their images of loved ones passed, to put upon it. Along with ours, of course. It would be a fine feed, and some drinking occurred, but after dinner we'd all gather around the alter and those that chose to would share stories of their loved ones in the pictures. Many laughs, some tears, but always a highly interesting night of learning about each other, and those people who helped carve us into who we are today.
