Mexico City parades to mark Day of the Dead festivities

Oct 28, 2019 13:06 IST

Mexicans dressed as elegant skeletons took to the streets of their capital over the weekend as the country's Day of the Dead festivities extend in scope and popularity. Thousands of revelers gathered at the foot of Mexico City's Angel of Independence statue, wearing costumes and face paint to imitate the dapper Mexican skeletal figure known as "La Catrina" in a parade. Mexico's two-day holiday to honour the dead traditionally begins on November 1, All Saints' Day on the Catholic calendar.
