Dia del Muertos Alters

Here are a few more photos of Dia del Muertos alters that were erected by various communities in El Parque Juarez.

The alter at let is representative o the pre-Hispanic alters composed by the indigenous people o the region.

The alters are often tiered and this tiered alter you can see all of the elements usually included in the alters, food, candles, produce, water or other liquid, incense (in the small container on the floor in front of the alter), and tissue paper.

Growers and purveyors of Marigolds must do really well this time of year.
