Dia de los Muertos liveblog pt. 2

The second half of the event at El Centro is full of life and culture. There’s a vendor section where people are selling things they’ve made. A woman is selling her art and they’re beautiful drawings that express intersectionality, whether that’s the intention or not. I bought a drawing of a muerto with a banner that said ‘resist’. I think it shows how Latinx culture and American culture combine, with the current political climate calling for more and more resistance. Then there were the performances. People of all ages were dancing and playing music, it was truly special seeing everyone so full of life. It embodies what Día de los Muertos is all about. Celebrating life while remembering and honoring those we have lost.
