A few days ago, I touted the Corpse Reviver #2 cocktail as my cocktail of choice for toasting this weekend’s celebration for Day of The Dead and promised to share some of the pics from the night’s festivities. So, here is a brief snapshot of my latest adventure, my trip to Santa Ana for Noche de Altares aka the area’s visually stunning Día de los Muertos celebration. It started downtown at 4th and Main streets and was block after block of altars, decorations, street food, and music. These pictures are so colorful and vibrant that I thought I’d let them speak for themselves so scroll away and enjoy.
An altar for a fallen surfer — this altar hit very close to home since our dear friend and fell surfer passed earlier this year.
