Day of the Dead

In Market Square this weekend,

San Antonio being a large Hispanic population,

they had a festival celebrating

Día de los Muertos - Day of the Dead





Not knowing of the tradition... at first

you think it to be a little strange until

you learn of it's history.


Here is a video I took with my iPhone.
