Mexico City caps off Day of the Dead celebrations

Nov 04, 2019 11:25 IST

Mexico City wrapped up its Day of the Dead celebrations with a parade along the boulevard.Dancers in beautiful costumes marched down a broad avenue followed by a float bearing the 20-foot-tall likeness of the goddess Mictecacihuatl.Two dozen people in mud-coloured makeup with animal masks walked behind, representing the nine levels of the underworld.It was the culmination of over two weeks of public activities in the city, from a procession of colourful sculptures as well as private visits to family gravesites honouring the departed.Many had their faces painted at sidewalk stands as vendors sold flower bouquets, masks and other items.
