Caras de los Muertos: Faces of the Dead

Pilsen was a great place to be muertos this weekend.

From the Carrera de los Muertos, or 5k Race of the Dead, to the annual #muertosdelarisa procession by ElevArte, the face of death was everywhere in this Chicago neighborhood and along 18th Street.

For Día de los Muertos, a fusion of Catholic and indigenous traditions celebrated Nov. 1 and 2 for All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day, it is a time to honor, respect and remember those we have lost.

We celebrate the beginning and the end of life.
