Though more popular in California and the Southwest than in New England, Day of the Dead observances celebrating the Mexican holiday’s traditions and heritage are being sponsored by merchants and art venues in Arlington’s Capitol Square Business Association. Restaurants, galleries, art studios, and shops along Massachusetts Avenue are participating in the street fair, which will offer art, crafts, food, and wine events providing a taste of the history and culture of Mexico’s “Dia de los Muertos” from 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 2.
