Shake off the sugar rush from Friday night’s trick-or-treating and check out the city’s celebrations of Día de los Muertos this weekend. Two worth considering:

▪ Sol Collective and the Historic Old Sacramento Foundation wrap up a month of “Day of the Dead” activities Saturday with Aztec dancers leading a procession through Old Sacramento to the lighting of an altar. (Free; 6 p.m.-12 a.m.; 101 I St., Sacramento; www.historicoldsac.org).

▪ La Raza Galeria Posada hosts its fifth annual Panteón de Sacramento, a two-day event centered around colorful and elaborate altars bearing offerings and remembrances for loved ones who have passed. (Free; 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Saturday; 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday; 2020 J St., Sacramento; www.lrgp.org).
