Yesterday was the Dia de Los Muertos parade in Albuquerque’s South Valley. It’s also known as the Marigold parade.

I went last year for the first time, and posted about it here. It was so colorful and so adorable, I had to go back. It was a gorgeous fall day so the turnout was huge. They changed the time this year to 2pm (it started at 4 last year), so between the crowd and the sun overhead, my photos didn’t turn out as nicely as I would like.

But still, I wanted to share with you a little flavor of Albuquerque. So, here in no particular order, are scenes from the day. (There was also a huge celebration at a nearby park after the parade, so some shots are from that.)

I hope you enjoy!

Hey look, it’s Trudell (we call him Tru), the cutest munchkin I know:

What a sweetie!

The parade is a really nice community celebration. A good time was had by all. I loved all the colors, and all the dancing and cheering. It was great.

I’ll be back manana, hope to see you here.
