Canoga Park DIA DE LOS MUERTOS 2014


Canoga Park
Dia de los Muertos Event
Sunday, November 2, 2014 
(Image above: Clouds that provided shade for me though out the event…sweet like Cotton Candy.)

What is Día de los Muertos?
 
Día de los Muertos, (The Day of the Dead), is a celebration, which represents the merging of an ancient Aztec celebration with Catholicism. The tradition grew from the belief that the souls of the dead return each year to visit with and be entertained by their loved ones. Many of the traditions are consistent with All Souls and All Saints Day.

We celebrate this event in Canoga Park every year - and ever year, I create a chalk piece. This year, the weather is still extremely warm for it to be a "chilly" November day. So what else to draw but a cool big ass ice cream cone with a little twist….Check out my 4 hour process where I create an 11ft x 4ft chalk piece on a warm Sunday morning….
