Día de los Muertos 2017

Drummers at the Marigold Parade

The Marigold Parade was today. It’s basically a large, quirky, and very exuberant party that moves through Albuquerque’s South Valley each year, celebrating Día de los Muertos. I was able to capture one drummer in the reflective sunglasses of another as they played.


Jemez Halloween

Halloween Horse and Buggy Ride

There’s a really amazing Halloween/Dia de los Muertos display in the Jemez this year, on Highway 485 (to the Gilman Tunnels). The entrance features a very large skull:

There are real, honest-to-god gravestones:

Many of the displays move:
