Specifically Made for Mexican Television—Native for Native!
Join Karen and Iván as they participate in the first annual CDMX Mexico City's 2016 Día de Muertos parade as the streets come alive with color, spectacular costumes, masks, floats, and flowers. Delve into myths, rituals, and legends like la Llorona on an evening cruise in a trajinera through Xochimilco canals. Visit a traditional market before making pan de muerto and calaveras de azúcar in Ocotepec, Morelos. Walk the streets and experience the extravagant altares built to honor local loved ones, and meet the people who created them. Karen and Iván invite us to discover the culture and traditions surrounding the Day of the Dead in their homeland of Mexico. They inspire us to understand the holiday’s history and embrace the importance it continues to hold for those honoring loved ones who have passed on. Truly an unforgettable experience!
