DIA de MUERTOS Mexicans celebrate DEATH

Contrasts Tucson’s Day of the Dead celebration and procession (see video) with the age old Mexican practice seen on both sides of the border to visit the graves of their loved ones on All Souls and All Saints Day. This visit took place in Nogales Sonora in Northern Mexico only a hour drive south of Tucson. Mexicans turn out in large numbers to clean, repaint and repair the graves for another year. Lots of folks turn out to help, the painters and yard workers, plus pizza salesmen and musicians.
