Dia de los Muertos at Fruitvale Station, Oakland

We visited Dia de los muertos festival by the Fruitvale BART station. Lots of inexpensive, greasy food, cheap toys, not-so-cheap trinkets and painted skulls of all sorts including edible...our friend Sonia sketched the Aztec dancers, we both sketched some bald mannequins sporting floral headwear and a tent with plastic "papel" picados, and the crowd. With one exception, I added the crowd later.
