Picture day: A wrestling ring on West Davis

Los Dias de Los Muertos in Oak Cliff this past weekend included an art show at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center and chocolate art at CocoAndre.

Pasteleria Maroches threw a block party Saturday with music, face painting, crafts and food. We weren’t expecting a wrestling ring.

I’m not a photographer, and I took this with my cracked-screen iPhone. It is a lucky shot.

[By the way, does anyone remember Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka? He was my favorite wrestler (leave me alone about the Von Erichs; I’m not from Texas), and his signature move was the Superfly Splash. Basically, what that luchador up there was doing on West Davis Saturday.]

Here are a couple more shots from Dia del Los Muertos:
