Dia De Los Muertos In The South Valley

Dia De Los Muertos In The South Valley

25TH ANNUAL SOUTH VALLEY DIA DE LOS MUERTOS MARIGOLD PARADE AND CELEBRATION

Dia de Los Muertos is an ancient tradition rooted in Mexico. It celebrates life and honors those who have passed on. Our particular celebration draws its influences from Jose Guadalupe Posada's early 1900's portrayal of personalities and professions as skeletons or Calaveras. Posada depicted rich and poor alike as skeletons in ordinary and sometimes outrageous but tragic life settings. Printed sheets would circulate during Dia De Los Muertos festivities where he would seize the opportunity for political satire and comedy. The Posada Calavera always seemed to be laughing, frolicking and 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. Come in your best calavera attire!
