WHAT WE DID: DENTON DAY OF THE DEAD 2015

Whenever we have a bunch of photos from a certain event, we like to break What We Did into two posts. Denton's annual Day of the Dead Festival has a habit of being awesome and generating lots of photo-ops and this year wasn't any different. So, here's your second What We Did post of the day, featuring plenty of images of this weekend's spooky festivities (it is a little heavy on coffin racing, but that isn't exactly a problem). 

While the rain may have seemed like it put a damper on Saturday's festivities, people still came out in droves to get their face painted, take in some racing, and watch Cirque Du Horror. Personally, we enjoyed Scott Porter's role as the announcer of the Coffin Race again this year. Our particular favorite quote was, "Control, ALT, Defeat!"

 Watching pushers attempt to not step over the line became a lot more fun as the rain fell.
