There are so many wonderful holidays here in Mazatlán. How could I possibly choose a favorite? I love Moto Week and of course Carnaval, but what about Semana Santa – or El Dia de la Musica? Every event is celebrated with a parade and fireworks, por supuesto!
But maybe, just maybe, Day of the Dead or El Dia de los Muertos might be my favorite. It’s such a unique celebration, full of love for family, partying, beer, fireworks, and celebration of those loved ones who have passed on.
Here in Mazatlán various sites in Centro create altars and the traditional callejoneada (parade through the streets) is a full on party with tons of people in costume, fireworks, donkey-pulled beer carts and much more. Everyone walks through the streets drinking the free beer and celebrating.
This year the Steamroller Press Day of the Dead images were carried aloft and you certainly felt the unique and artsy style that is Mazatlán. I hope you’ll enjoy the album below!
