Mark your calendars for this years 25th anniversary Muertos & Marigolds parade in Albuquerque's South Valley!
Dia de Los Muertos is an ancient tradition deeply rooted in Mexico. It celebrates life, and also acts as an honor to those who have passed on. The celebration gets its influence from Jose Guadalupe Posada's early 1900's portrayal of former people's personalities and professions in the form of skeletons or "Calaveras". Posada portrayed skeletons in ordinary and sometimes outrageous scenes, which usually seemed to be laughing, dancing, or up to some kind of mischief.
The parade starts 2pm at the Bernalillo Sheriff"s Substation at Centro Familiar and Isleta. Music, altars, food and art vendors to follow the parade at the Westside Community Center 1250 Isleta Blvd SW. The parade ends around 6pm and is free to attend.
Dress and face paint strongly encouraged!
