Every year there's a Dia de los Muertos sidewalk "parade" in the beach community of Carpinteria (just south of Santa Barbara.

It's a great event for photographers, especially those who arrive early and hang around the staging area. This year an hour or so before the event, a hearse cruised up and down the main street. The driver swears he wasn't aware of the festivities - that they were just out for a drive.

The same event yielded these images in the last two years:
