El Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a holiday that honors the dead through altars, offerings, sculptures and dances. For the Aztec, who had been celebrating this tradition for more than 3,000 years before encountering travelers from Spain, death was not the end but the continuation of life. Day of the Dead is still celebrated today, and although it's officially November 2, the related events start several days earlier in Denver.

Here are eight ways to celebrate Día de los Muertos around town.
