The Day of the Dead has been celebrated in Albuquerque with the Annual Marigold Parade for several years now, and the event keeps getting better and better. I’m actually getting to go to this event this year, not as a participant, but rather as a spectator. I’ll have to go early to get a good spot to sit along the parade route, but early I’ll be with a book in hand. Below is the poster of all the need to know info. The 2013 Marigold Parade is a joint effort put on by La Raza Unido & Cambio. La Raza Unido and Cambio, Inc. are non-profit entities in Albuquerque that promote social change and help the poor. Their service and dedication are commendable, and they are vital parts of the community. Many thanks to them and the County of Bernalillo for making this Marigold Parade happen!
For more general info on Dia De Los Muertos, the Marigold Parade in Albuquerque and to find out what a calavera is, read my previous posts, (see below). They’re full of great information that inquiring minds NEED to know, and for more parade info click on the poster to go to their website. And remember..no papers, no fear. There is hope and help.
