PLAYA DEL CARMEN, QUINTANA ROO (Agencies)- The festival “Todos somos catrinas” (All of us are catrinas), which began years ago with “papel picado” classes in different venues and will conclude next week, is ready for its participants to join the traditional parade of Catrinas.
“And on this occasion, participants and attendees will have the opportunity to admire the murals painted on walls that were donated by local and foreign artists for the purpose of this “Day of the Dead” celebration,” explained Jenni Gaona, director of the festival “Todos somos catrinas”.
