Day of the Dead in AC?

I booked my trip and train tickets, not realizing that we were spending the evening of November 1 in Aguas Calientes. We'll be in Ollantaytambo until 3PM on November 1, spending the night in AC, then taking the train and a taxi to Cusco on November 2, arriving in the evening. Can anyone tell me if there are celebrations we can attend?

AC is a tiny touristy town, so if there is anything going on (which i doubt), you will not miss it.

Something to read about "Dia de los Muertos"

So it sounds like the Day of the Dead activities on November 2 are during the day, not at night?
