Mérida, Yucatán — The Camino de las Flores, a floral exhibition that transforms a city street into a colorful flower path, returns Sunday, Oct. 28, in time for Hanal Pixan.

The creative and fanciful flower show not only transforms the street into a show garden, it also transforms plants and flowers into figurative forms that represent Mexico’s heritage.

Since it is tied in with the Festival de las Ánimas, expect Day of the Dead themes from the next Camino de las Flores exhibition. Designs have also typically represented traditional embroidery, pasta tile designs, and familiar animals, birds and reptiles.

Last year’s Camino involved 50,000 flowers; this year, the city is promising 500,000.

City workers have already begun preparations at Calle 50-A, in the historical center’s Mejorada neighborhood. Outlines drawn in the street will hint at what’s to come.

Among the flowers put to use are the Mexican marigolds, or cempasúchiles, in addition to carnations, alyssum, chrysanthemums, petunias and snake plants.

The display will be visible from an aluminum platform that runs between the street and the park.
