November 10 on 10 | Dia De Los Muertos

My daughter asked me if I could take her to the Dia de los Muertos festival earlier this month.  She needed to go as part of an assignment for her Spanish class.  I knew it would be a great photo opportunity so I was excited to go.

I have to say this festival is the best kept secret in San Jose.  I was so surprised that there were not more people there.  It was a fantastic, family event.  I definitely plan on going again next year.  We had the best time.  The costumes were beautiful, the energy contagious, and everyone was asked to join in the parade.

It truly was an  inclusive community event that was such a wonderful experience to be a part of (and it was a photographer’s dream event to photograph).

If you have a Dia de los Muertos festival in your area, you should definitely go.  And for those of you who live near me, let’s go together next year!  And now, please continue through our 10 on 10 blog circle and check out Luciane’s Halloween photos.

  • Wow, a dream indeed – in love with all of the bright colors. Your images should be in the San Jose Mercury News!ReplyCancel

  • Kristina, I am so impressed of your images and the way you celebrate your dead. It looks amazing, I can almost feel the energy and the music. In my country we don´t have any festivals like this, hopefully you will find those who live in your area and do it again next year – I would love to see the pictures 😉ReplyCancel
