La Virgen de la Rosario & DIa De Los Muertos...

Yesterday was the Fiesta de La Virgen De La Rosario. People crowded the Parque Central all day. With traffic being diverted around the Parque devotees of La Virgen created massive murals out of colored saw dust around the parque. Later in the day a procession was made to the church in the square lead by priests and men carrying the Virgen to the front of the church.

Along with that celebration may families visited the cemetery to start celebrating Dia De Los Muertos (which is today). The main walk way was flooded with the families of the departed. I spent some time talking to a few of the families that where hard at work cleaning and re-painting tombs and grave markers. I'm going to head back out that way today. I'm hoping to catch a glimpse of the kites used to show the dead where to return.
