The 16th Annual Altar Show  opened November 9th at the Nevada County Fairgrounds, and runs through Sunday,  The Altar Show is an annual exhibition of over 60 altars celebrating the common human experience of life and death.  It started in the Mexican tradition of the Day of the Dead but has since expanded.
