The Day of the Dead came early this year
A few photos from last night's Day of the Dead celebration over on Alberta Street.
I missed the procession but I made it over there in time to snag a few alien-themed cupcakes. The street was still lined with people in costumes strolling along to the beats pouring out of a drum circle. One bloke was totting around his toddler in a small coffin welded to the front of his bike, both of them done up as skeletons. A few blocks down, an angel of death was walking around on stilts attached to both her arms and legs. She nearly knocked me over when she threw open her wings to pose for a photo.
Also: one of the galleries was giving out free pumpkin candy. Swank.
