Day of the Dead

Parade Float

Attending the Day of the Dead parade that takes place every November 2nd is a recent tradition that has become very popular in the last couple of years in Mexico City. The design of this float is themed to the “Mummies of Guanajuato”, a popular sight to see in Guanajuato, which would belong in a parade themed to Mexican folk tales from around the country.

The float is composed of two sections: The first is a simplified version of the “Basílica Colegiata de Nuestra Señora de Guanajuato” church in downtown Guanajuato. The second section is a cemetery representative of the mummies’ origin story. Day of the Dead’s iconic flower, the marigold, decorates the float all around as well as part of the city’s skyline.
