¡20 Años de Muertos y Marigolds!

20th Annual South Valley Dia De Los Muertos Marigold Parade and Celebration

[ Sun Nov 4 2012 9:00 AM ]

For two decades, calaveras have been dancing their way through the South Valley in honor of the dead. Make no mistake: This isn't gory Halloween. Instead, the tradition is often satirical, political and comedic. "We want the public to laugh and perhaps cry but never abhor," write the organizers. I've seen the Dia de los Muertos festivities grow over the last few years. But this still feels like the neighborhood party it's meant to be. The parade starts around 2 p.m. at the Bernalillo Sheriff's substation (Centro Familiar and Isleta) and then makes its way to the Westside Community Center, where there will be altars, food, music and art. Break out your Sunday best, don your most beautiful calavera paint, pluck a marigold and celebrate your loved ones who've passed on.
