Dia de los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday that gathers friends and family to remember those who have passed away. I've been coming to this celebration at Oakland's Fruitvale village for the past few years. Nearly everyone is beaming with pride as they share tradition and heritage with the community through music, dancing, alters for loved ones, and craft where marigolds are strung on string and paper flowers are made.
