Experiencing Death a la mexicana

Music, colors, and above all, make up, caught the attention of the people that were just passing by, and among giggles and laughs, Mexico's depiction of Death comes to life

This year, cempasuchil flowers, 54 skulls decorated with Mexican motives, and several Catrinas (Mexico's Grande Dame of Death) embellish Paseo de la Reforma, setting the mood for Mexico's beloved tradition the Day of the Death (Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico on November 1 and 2).
