For the third year in a row, a Day of the Dead Parade will be held in Mexico City in which monumental skulls, floats and catrinas will be touring Paseo de la Reforma from the Estela de Luz to the Zócalo.
The inspiration for this parade that appeared on the big screen when scenes were filmed in the historic center of the Mexican capital for the film Specter, from the James Bond saga will be maintained this year, however by 2018 the idea is for giant puppets to resume the iconography of José Guadalupe Posadas (creator of the “Catrina“).
The parade will be integrated by various mobile offerings which in turn will be divided into sections that are yet to be defined.
The parade that will be one kilometer long, will also be made up of floats, giant puppets and monumental balloons, as well as mojigangas and other characters of the Mexican culture, including the classic skulls and the beautiful Catrinas by José Guadalupe Posada.
The Secretariat of Culture of CDMX announced the date of the event through its social networks and pointed out that very soon more details will be given.
The parade will be held on Saturday, October 27 from 11:00 to 16:00 hours and this time it will start from the Estela de Luz, along Paseo de la Reforma, Avenida Juarez and it will end at the Zócalo square.
This is a new way of celebrating the colorful tradition of Day of the Dead in Mexico City, which with this third edition is expected to become one of the most important events of its kind in Latin America.
The parade will involve more than 800 volunteers, floats, dancers, alebrijes and giant puppets.
In addition, the activities for the Day of the Dead include a night bike ride and the traditional monumental offering of Día de Muertos on the Zócalo, downtown CDMX.
