Día de los Muertos Festival

Sunday was The Unity Council Día de Los Muertos Festival in Oakland's Fruitvale neighborhood.
This was the 22nd year of this festival which included altar artistic installations created by community members paying homage to los muertos. As well as live music, Ballet folklorico and Aztec dancers. There were sugar skulls and faces painted to look like skulls. Marigolds were everywhere, bright yellow-orange to guide spirits of loved ones to the celebration. – Cathy McAuliffe
