A parade full of color, music and some very living skeletons! The parade reflected the richness of mexican culture, its most famous artists, legends and our eagerness to celebrate life and honor death.

NOT LOST MX TIPS
Last year the parade was very crowded! I recommend to arrive early to get a good spot. I found the best view over Paseo de la Reforma, if you stand in the same place, the parade should last about 20 minutes to see all the caravans. Remember to bring a cap for the sun.
The Parade in 2016!
The parade started at 3, the streets were packed and the crowd was extatic. There were people watching from the streets, for restaurant balconies, from tall buildings, even standing in monuments and trees. I myself had to climb a tree to see what was going on in the parade and I am convinced I had one of the best views.
It was amazing to see how the parade atracted so many foreigners. As I walked down the streets I could hear people speaking english, french, italian and even russian!
