Día de Muertos is a key date to live and enjoy in full color Mexico’s traditions and mysticism. This marvelous festivity is celebrated throughout the Mexican Republic, and projects with a unique charm and nostalgia dead’s veneration. People believe that those who passed away return from the underworld for one night only, to celebrate with the ones they love.
Every year Aguascalientes celebrates Festival Cultural de las Calaveras, but this edition is going to be amazing, mainly because it’s the festival’s 25th anniversary. So prepare your suitcase and enjoy this magnificent event with your family and friends, from October 25th till November 3rd.
