The Day of the Dead Festival in Mexico is an amazing event. In 2016, Mexico City held it’s first ever parade. La desfile de Dia de Muertos. There was an insane amount of people there, with the advice from some friends, I tried to get into the press area. The bouncer said a flat “No”. I kept asking, and some of the locals began chanting “Let him in, Let him in”, the guy opened the gate, and here we are. I was basically in the Parade. This is why I love travel!
Music, Costumes, Floats, Dancing, it was an incredible fiesta.
Personally, I’m used to celebrating Halloween, but they take it to the next level with Day of the Dead. Families from all over Mexico celebrate the lives of those who have passed away, and give offerings to help them in the afterlife. Over the past few years (with the help of Spectre, the James Bond movie) Dia de Muertos has now become an international sensation, with people from all over the world dressing up as the female skeleton La Calavera Catrina for Halloween.
Being able to produce this was a surprise. I rushed to get it posted. This just happened a few hours ago. Enjoy!
