Carousels decorate the plaza for the Guadalupe Festival in Ciudad de Oaxaca, Mexico















Mexico is always abundant with rich color, and these carousel animal photos taken in the Oaxaca region during several trips are wonderfully garish and madly humorous. Carousels are used to celebrate El Día de los Muertos and the Virgen de Guadalupe festivals.

I adore old carousels! Too bad there were no calaca's animals!

should be a great Dia de los Muertos at the Museum...I heard you are doing a shrine in the community shrine area!

Hope that you make it to the opening, I will be in San Miguel with Rebecca during the actual event day.
