Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Skulls, music and celebration will soon fill the streets of Old Town, as San Diego's most elaborate and richly varied celebration of Mexico's revered holiday, Day of the Dead, returns November 1 and 2.

There will be a free Tour of the Altars, featuring colorful and personalized altars to deceased loved ones, including historic figures or political statements. There will also be a public candlelight procession to El Campo Santo Cemetery and a commemoration of the death 100 years ago of José Guadalupe Posada, the Mexican artist most closely associated with this holiday.

CBS News 8's Alicia Summers files this video report from Old Town with a preview.
