New York Times

....perhaps the most unusual - and wildest - celebration will be at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, the 35-acre final resting place of Cecil B. DeMille and stars like Jayne Mansfield and Rudolph Valentino. On Oct. 29, the cemetery will take on a decidedly festive atmosphere, with a crowd dancing and singing on the graves and among the headstones. Scheduled performers include the vocalist Yma Sumac as well as Viola Trigo, a Mexican folk singer, who will perform on the lawn in front of Douglas Fairbanks's grave. The cemetery, which will be closed to burials that day, will also be lined with homemade altars (last year someone built one out of popcorn) dedicated to the builders' relatives or favorite stars.

This annual event, now in its sixth year, has grown from about 1,000 participants at first to more than 10,000 last year. "It's out of control," said Alberto Hernandez, the cemetery superintendent and the festival's organizer. "This is a city with so many cultures: Indian people, Russian people and others come and do it their own way."


LOS ANGELES Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard; (323) 469-1181; www.forevernetwork.com.
When: Oct. 29, 3 to 11 p.m.
What: Music performances, dancing and homemade altars.
