Last Tuesday we headed to downtown Riverside to a Dia de los Muertos celebration. We circled around until we found a parking spot and walked over to the festivities. There were arts and crafts booths for the kids. The Phi made some papel picado .
We even ran into Pearmama and her beautiful family, and they were all decked out for the day.
On the steps of the art museum they built a large beautiful community altar.
As a family we added our own name to the altar.
I was very impressed with the celebration. (Thanks Oliver for the heads up!) My only suggestion is a bigger venue. It was so crowded!!
We know that Dia de los Muertos is a celebration of life and the lives of those who have passed. We know it is suppose to be a happy event. But after we placed "Roman's" name onto the altar and we walked back to the car PR Dad said exactly what I was thinking.....
