The Day of the Dead is just around the corner. From the spongy pan de muerto to the beautiful cempasúchil flowers that adorn the most elaborate altars, the festivities that remember those who are no longer here are an essential part of Mexican culture.
The XXIII Feria de las Calacas is one of the festivals that will take place in Mexico City and you can enjoy it for free. It will be held at the Centro Nacional de las Artes (Cenart) and is for all ages.
If you live in the area or if you have never been to this cultural space, here are the dates and times to attend this colorful event.
