Dia de los muertos 5K and 10K in Alviso

Race sign

On Saturday, November 2, 2019, Dick and I drove to the little bayside community of Alviso, just up the road from us, to watch and photograph the Dia de los muertos race. We didn’t find out it was happening until about a week ago, and we were tempted to run it ourselves, but by the time I went online to register it was sold out.

As you can see from the photos below, it was was a lively, colorful, home-town type race. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and hope to participate as runners next year.
