With Spanish music sounding all over the South Valley, hundreds gathered in costume for the 25th Annual Marigold Parade celebrating the Day of the Dead on Nov. 5.

The Marigold Parade is a cultural event in Albuquerque that honors those who have passed with music—mostly Latino—and a parade of cars and floats decorated with marigold flowers and sugar skulls.
