#55 Dia de los Muertos celebration @ TMA

Here are a few snaps from tonight's All Souls Procession celebration down at the Tucson Museum of Art. This family-oriented celebration of the ancient Mexican custom is known as Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead honoring our ancestors and loved ones who have passed away. The above picture is one of several nice sidewalk chalk art pieces drawn in the courtyard area.

One of several altars with pictures, religious items, food, flowers, skulls, etc.

This one was pretty cool, right below the Friday the 13th calendar was a metronome ticking back and forth...

Here are a few pictures of some of large masked characters in the progression parade...
