Vaquería de las Ánimas: Dancing for Day of the Dead

Mon., October 24, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm


The Festival de las Ánimas begins with a special evening by the Plaza Grande.

Enjoy dozens of costumed folk dancers celebrating the Vaquería de Ánimas, or a fiesta for the souls at the steps of the Municipal Palace.

With incense, incantations, candles and live music, the performers will present a special program to recreate the traditions in honor of the departed.

The dance references Day of the Dead and Hanal Pixán celebrations, for which traditional altars are being built at the park. Full festival schedule here.
