In my previous post I wrote about the "Mexicráneos" on display along the Paseo de la Reforma. But the skulls are not the only attraction along the famous boulevard during the Day of the Dead season.
Along the boulevard there are larger-than-life statues of "Catrinas".
As in past years, there are numerous benches installed with a "Catrina" being courted by a "Catrín".
There is an "ofrenda" along the boulevard, but this one is not in honor of the dead, but in honor of the living heroes who distributed and administered the COVID vaccines.
I hope you are not tired of seeing marigolds (cempasúchil) because a stretch of Reforma on both sides is the site of a festival of flowers.
Vendors from nurseries throughout the city have set up stands selling live plants and flowers.
There is quite a variety of plants for sale.
But you know that the biggest share of plants here are marigolds!
