Day of the Dead 2013

I thought I would take some time this summer and go back into our last year in Mazatlan and post a few of our most enjoyable things we did.

Day of the Dead is one of our favourite times. It usually runs over a couple of days and is basically a celebration of your departed relatives and friends. The Mexicans build elaborate displays to their relatives which show some of their favourite things. They will also go to the cemetary and eat and usually drink while gathered around the grave site.

Here in Mazatlan there is a large parade in Centro which many people dress up for. There are also beer wagons pulled by donkeys that distribute beer to the waiting crowds.

At the end of a very long night we relax at Macaws, one of our favourite hangouts in Mazatlan.
