This years Day of the Dead Festival in Oakland, Californias, Fruitvale District was another beautiful day in this little corner of the city. Each year this event brings Oaklanders, and other out to celebrate the cultural and religious celebration of remembering the people who have passed from this life to the next recognizing the lives that they lived and our connection to them. We bought some of the bright orange Marigold flowers and made a little setting for our own family, a wonderful way to reflect and remember those we miss.
We also love finding great hand made arts and crafts from mexico and local artists, today we bought an oil painting from a local artist for $45. a great price for a beautiful little canvas. A word to the wise, come early for the best selection.
