Rodeo Drive to set the stage for Day of the Dead

Día de Muertos Puerto Peñasco 2015  (1)Oct. 30th & 31st – Celebration of Day of the Dead traditions – 5 p.m.  on Calle 32 (“Rodeo Drive”) Plan a visit to the curios galleries and shops along the “old road to La Cholla” to take part in the festivities, which include many honored traditions, sights, smells, and cuisine from central Mexico.  An altar contest, along with a procession of “Catrinas” are sure to enthrall all interested in Mexican traditions, sugar skulls, Day of the Dead, art, music, and dance!  The Altars will be available for viewing each evening beginning at 5 p.m. – on Friday, we also HIGHLY recommend visiting the local COBACH Altar contest (at the COBACH high-school across from Lluvia del Mar hotel).  On Saturday, October 31st, the altars will once again be on display along “Rodeo Drive” beginning at 5 p.m. (with parking areas available near the entrance to “Rodeo Drive” just past the train tracks [Free parking]).  Beginning at 9 p.m., a procession of Catrinas/Catrinos will engulf the “drive” – with the presence of more than 100 individuals of all ages with their best Day of the Dead “skeletonish reflections.”
