Day of the Dead Mexico Dia de los Muertos
The annual day of the dead festivals have become hugely popular in Mexico, with many of the gay parties and clubs hosting special costume parties and events.
The day of the dead takes place annually on the 2nd of November each year.
The parade is a relatively new event, inspired by the James Bond film, Spectre.The Day of the Dead parade, complete with floats, giant skeleton marionettes and more than 1,000 actors, dancers and acrobats in costumes takes place in the heart of the city.
Day of the Dead dates back to the Aztec period and celebrants believe the spirits of their deceased loved ones return for a visit. Families build altars adored with photographs, votive candles and items the deceased enjoyed such as food and drink – even tequila or mezcal.
The event is part of La Catrina Fest which aims to showcase traditional Mexicao clutures and traditions in a bright and modern way!
