The Procession ~ Dia de los Muertos

Sorry the Post is a little late, but as promised I'm taking you along on the day of the Procession of the Dia de los Muertos Celebration we attended.   I'm making it a Visually Epic Party length since you so patiently waited for it... *Winks*... Enjoy...

Princess T insisted that Gramma get in front of the camera for at least one Shot, she's honing her Photographer Skills... *Smiles*

 This Young Woman reminded me so very much of our Youngest Daughter {who is the Mother of the G-Kid Force}... even Princess T noticed the uncanny resemblance, even with Calavera Make-Up, to her Mommy.


                  Kathy Cano-Murillo, 'The Crafty Chica', was there... I Adore her Vibrant Style and her Crafty Instructional Books on how to Create some of your own 'Crafty Chica Style' Wearable Art, so it was a Joy to meet her in person and see so much of her Amazing Work up close. 


And yes, I'll be partaking of the Dia de los Muertos Altar Wine a little bit each day... so expect more rambling Posts!  *LOL*

Salud my Friends!!!  I do Hope you've Enjoyed coming along on The Procession with us Virtually?


Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian... and the G-Kid Force


  1. Wow, so fabulously colourful and inspiring! Love it all x

  2. Thank you for sharing this marvelous feast for the eyes and soul! (I'm certain the altar wine provides special medicinal properties.)

    The elements of Native American participation are especially fascinating -- wish one could hear the rhythms of their marching music!!

    During my first visit to the great earthwork in Cahokia, across the river from St. Louis, MO, I was fortunate to encounter an archaeologist walking back across the Great Plaza toward the car lot. We followed the path together and, of course, I asked his private opinion of what became of the people who created this great city and monument. At that moment, two young Mexican-American groundsmen passed us -- and there on the Great Plaza, these young men were kicking a soccer ball about as they trotted by... The scientist smiled at them, then at me and said: "I don't know why they left, but y'know, I do believe they're coming back."

    If only one could see the faces of the spirits entering the celebration and procession!

  3. Hello Dawn, I just love all of the wonderful photos you have posted of this Dia de los Muertos festival. I am guessing it is the one in Tucson or Phoenix, as I think I recognize Zarco Guerrero's masks and figures. I was in a DOD show with Zarco in Longmont, Colorado two years ago. Please let me know where this event was. Thanks so much for sharing!!
