Dia de los Muertos in Albuquerque

At the old town part of Albuquerque I read about Santisma’s Dia de los Muertos and having not been to this celebration of those passed, I decided to head down for the parade and celebration.  I have video of the parade but here is a picture of a similar style event, people dressed up and painted their faces while with black around the eyes and mouth:


The parade ended at the Poco a Poco restaurant patio

I had a couple bowls of great Pozole soup while watching the dancing performances

Some people came in costume, my favorite was Gumby.

Johnny Salas put on a art show and around the studio alters to passed ones made an interesting display.  People took an great amount time and thought to put these together and I really liked the idea.  I couldn’t help but think I hope one day far into the future someone will remember me fondly with a shire like this:

He must have really liked beans, my kind of guy.
