Mexico City comes alive with Day of the Dead parade

Tens of thousands of Mexicans lined the capital’s Reforma boulevard for the Day of the Dead parade, a modern twist on a belief that dates back to the pre-Hispanic era. Fused with the Catholic festivals of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, the Day of the Dead is one of the most deep-rooted traditions in Mexico, celebrated by millions of people from Mayan Indians in the tropical south to urban professionals in Mexico City. Drawing on beliefs that the dead can return from the underworld, the celebrations officially begin on November 1 with the Day of the Innocents to honour departed children, and ends with the Day of the Dead on November 2 for adults. As tradition goes, families at home put up altars dedicated to loved ones who have passed.
