Day of the Dead-Mission District, San Francisco CA

The Annual Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration took place last night in San Francisco’s Mission District.  Starting at 7pm the procession wound around from 24th and Bryant to 25th up to Mission and back down 24th.
The annual event offers an opportunity for the diverse communities of SF to blend together in the sharing of this wonderfully rich tradition. Ending in Garfield amongst a variety of shrines, the festivities were a spectacular array of costumes, elaborate face paint and a celebration and remembrance of those who have passed.

Here are a couple photos
