Prayer and Deeds for Deceased Ancestors

Does this also apply if a Noahide goes to an ancestral grave during an idolatrous festival? I have family members who pay their respects at the beginning of November, as a custom associated with their religious tradition. My refusing to go would cause hard feelings. The dominant spirit of the visit is to pay our respects to our deceased ancestors, not to attend or participate in an actual service or worship of an idol. Nevertheless, a short prayer to an idol is likely.

Thank You,
