Really a geat show this year for Dia de La Muerte - so glad we made it out that night. The highlight of the evening was probably the Catrinas competition with some absolutely spectacular costumes, and such amazing variety, with Catrinas from all ages. The food was excellent, with dozens of tables and stands. Great family event and quite interesting!

We visited the Theatre for the annual celebration of the Day of the Dead. It was a free show in the open air outside the theatre. There was a couple of great bands singing modern and traditional Mexican music on a huge stage in front of the theatre and around the grounds were the exhibitions of various memorials set up in the traditional style to commemorate various personalities and , most interesting of all, women and children dressed as Catrinas with skeletal makeup and elaborate dresses and hats.They moved around amongst the crowd allowing people to take photos of their largely stunning costumes. The memorials and the Catrinas were all taking part in the competition for best and most imaginative interpretation of the tradition. There were stalls selling Mexican food from different states of Mexico and the crowd was one of the best humoured and well behaved crowd I have ever come across. We were there with my mother-in-law who was in a wheel chair and people could not have been more helpful in helping to clear access and help to ge the chair over cables and curbs where there were no ramps. It was a wonderful free evening.

This building could use an update outside but the inside has a lot to offer the locals. Well worth the visit and your support!
