Dia de los Muertos Celebrations in the Albuquerque Area
In Albuquerque, Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) celebrations take place over several weeks in October and November, although the holiday is traditionally celebrated between October 31st and November 2nd.
Families remember deceased loved ones and honor them by building offering altars (ofrendas) where sugar skulls are placed, along with offerings of pan de muertos (bread). The holiday is festive although the subject may not be, as spirits are welcomed back into peoples' lives for another year.
The Marigold Parade and Festival takes place in Albuquerque's South Valley on the first Sunday in November.Print
