Full description
This celebration is a popular ceremony in which the ancestors are invited to visit beyond the underworld. It is believed that the deceased are granted permission to visit from the beyond. Family members offer their ancestors their favorite foods and drinks on an altar adorned with yellow Mexican marigolds, dead bread, incense, sweet skulls, and in some cases, even the music of their liking. During this wonderful tour, appreciate the main pantheon, a part of this tradition, amongst the tombs, copal, music, and colors of the celebrations. People will celebrate with the souls of the dead and dance together with others of the community who wear their costumes and live the magic of the All Saints' Day festivities. This tour is only available on November 1.
