Canoga Park Day of the Dead Festival

Here's another one of the fun and free things you can do in Southern California. I recently attended the 13th annual Canoga Park Day of the Dead festival. Here's an idea of what it looked like.

This blog really is a bit of a tourism blog as well as a photography blog, isn't it?

The car show had a lot of elegant and beautiful hood ornaments.

I generally don't post personal pictures, but we saw an old friend and I captured a nice shot of Monica and Richard hugging.

Lastly, an artist hard at work in the chalk art area.
