Día de los Muertos Marigold Parade

The annual Día de los Muertos Marigold Parade marches through the South Valley today. Clad as calaveras (skeletons), attendees walk and pay tribute to a particular dead person—usually a friend or family member—while marigolds are used throughout the festivities to help guide the spirits home. The parade runs from 4 to 8 p.m., beginning at the South Valley Bernalillo County Sheriff's Substation (2039 Isleta SW) and ending at the Westside Community Center (1250 Isleta SW). For more information, call 363-1326 or visit muertosymarigolds.org.
