Day of the Dead Celebration


Yesterday I stopped in at the Day of the Dead celebration at the Desert Botanical Garden.  These talented dancers were performing a regional dance from Mexico.


There is no denying that there was a lot of color represented in their costumes and on the stage area.

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns.  I'm visiting a Hollywood landmark that very few get to see.

The colors are truly great, and a perfect contrast to the theme of the celebration.

Looks pretty lively for the day of the dead.

Sharon, We both are honoring El Día de los Muertos. Makes me homesick for Mazatlán where we have not gone for sometime now. Your post is decidedly more colorful. Both of ours have made me resolve to review my admittedly meager Spanish, but I did so love using it because the Mexican people were always so welcoming and encouraging!!

Very colorful indeed! I used to go to the celebration downtown Chandler which was always very moving.

We are so FAMILY in the States. Why hasn't it spread across the country?

I like the idea of joy and colour rather than gloom when celebrating the dead...

I had fun spending that day at FearCon. There was lots of fantastic costumes.

Very vibrant colours, particularly in the clothing of the women.

That does look like fun. Those characters in the background of the first shot are a little creepy!

glenda said...

Great shot! Those tall figures are really neat!

Randy said...

That was always one of my favorite things there. Nice shots.

I might have told you this before but I really enjoy everything regarding Dia de los Muertos.

I find this tradition really interesting.
