Day of the Dead comes to life.
HUNDREDS of people dressed up and took to the streets of Liverpool to celebrate the Day of the Dead on Friday night.
Known as Dia De Muertos in Latin America the carnival has become more popular in the West - even featuring in the Bond movie Spectre and Batman V Superman.
The festival marks when people remember their loved ones who have passed on - but in Liverpool it offers a chance for unadulterated partying.
And on Friday party-goers donned their best costumes and distinctive skull motifs were everywhere.
Europe's largest confetti cannons showered revellers, while acrobats, theatrical circus performers and skilled Latin dancers kept them entertained.
Many had their faces painted in the elaborate Dia De Muertos candy skull, as they danced the night away to DJs and live acts.
