If you’re unfamiliar with Dia, it’s a Mesoamerican holiday dedicated to ancestors; it honors both death and the cycle of life.

There’s music, dancing, sugar skulls, and sweet remembrance. And it’s Downtown, so what’s not to love?

Pictures really tell the story of Dia best, so here are some of our favorites (thank you Joe Alfaro, who shared these on our Flickr account) from the inaugural celebration, held two years ago.
