‘Day of the Dead’ in Mexico promotes the idea that the deceased visit friends and relatives

(EXPRESS) The third annual Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrations were watched by tens of thousands of people in Mexico City.

This year’s parade was held in memory of migrants who have died while journeying from Mexico to the United States.

The event comes as a group of about 7,000 people make their way from Central America through Mexico in the hope of reaching the US border.

Mexico City government had said on Twitter: “The parade… is dedicated to migrants, who in their transit to other countries have lost their lives, and who in their passing through the country have contributed to a true ‘Refuge City.’”
