This is the end

The Halloween season officially closed out today (sniffle, sniffle), with visits to a sweet little Dia de Los Muertos festival in Mission Hills, and the annual trek through the Forneris farms corn maze. Here's my little photojournal of the day:


Here's a cute family all skull-painted for Dia de Los Muertos. The best part, of course, is that the dog is painted, too.


Today's festival featured a display of small ofrendas by children. We thought this one was quite lovely.


The weather was somewhat overcast today, which did result in this rather apocalyptic corn photo. It was also the last day before the corn gets mowed down, so it was brown and kind of creepy looking.


And so we bid farewell to Halloween/Dia de Los Muertos 2007 with this year's winner of the Most Pathetically Deformed Pumpkin Contest. Until next year...farewell, pumpkins!
