Día de los Muertos

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, was this Sunday.
Here in Albuquerque, I went to the parade!

More pictures are here:

~~~~ Details ~~~~
I parked on Isleta a little after 1:00, and walked about 5 blocks to the Westside Community Center, where the parade ends. I walked through the grounds there - full of food booths, then on to the connected park, where the arts and crafts booths were set up. I found a nice spot to set up my chair, surrounded by families, and waited. The parade started at 2:00, and got to me by about quarter after.
After the parade, I walked around the booths for a bit, then back to the car. I was home a little after 4:00.
