MORRISANIA - Some Bronx residents celebrated Dia De Los Muertos -- or the Day of the Dead -- early this year.

Musicians performed traditional Mexican folk music at 163rd Street and Brooke Avenue Wednesday.

The Bronx Music Heritage Center hosted the event for its first time, and it seems to have been an early success.

The official holiday is actually Nov. 2, but few, if any, people in Morrisania seemed to mind.
