The annual Muertos Fest took place this weekend at the historic La Villita in downtown San Antonio. Many locals and tourists gathered to celebrate Dia de Los Muertos, a traditional Mexican holiday to honor those who have passed away.

The event is a two-day festival featuring local art and food vendors, a community altar contest, and musical and dance performances.
