All the Colorful Día de los Muertos Altars We Saw at Muertos Fest

School groups, families and social clubs contributed colorful, heartfelt Día de los Muertos altars to the seventh annual Muertos Fest, a kid-friendly event at Hemisfair benefiting the nonprofit Inner City Development. Beyond honoring dearly departed relatives, pets and celebrities (Selena, Frida Kahlo and Emilio Navaira, to name a few), several of this year’s altars were more symbolic in nature, paying tribute to extinct flora and fauna, victims of mass shootings and children who passed away in border detention centers.
