Dia de los Muertos

Ryan Vasquez

Once a year along 1st Avenue South in Birmingham the streets are closed and Alabamians are transported to another place and another culture.

“There’s the smell of the food, and the smell of the copol, and the smell of the candle wax and the sights of the art and the color and you hear the music.”

Wendy Jarvis is describing Birmingham’s Dia de los Muertos Festival.
