Day of the Dead Festival coming up November 2nd.  I understand it is a big deal around here.  Dress up like something dead and come downtown to the parade at 5:00 p.m.  All ages, children and adults. Does anyone have any more information on this event?

I did go to the parade last night and to Caris Park afterword for Day of the Dead festivities.  Weather was nice and the parade was great!

El Dia de los Muertos is an importanat religious holiday in Mexico.  Also called All Souls Day, it is an occasion marked by festive celebrations to honor the dead.  Cemeteries are cleaned and decorated, special food and candies cooked, and home altars are designed in homage to one's ancestors.  It is a day of joyous remembrance, not of sadness.  The special songs, poems, foods, and toys created for El Dia de los Muertos reflect this outlook.
