We will travel three days to Patzcuaro and Uruapan:In the state of Michoacán, the seasonal markets for the Day of the Dead in Patzcuáro. Both the folk art collector and those interested in Mexican culture will not want miss these once-a-year events. November 1st and 2nd, Mexico celebrates Dia de Los Muertos, one of the most fascinating times of year. Market stalls are filled with delightful skeletons, skulls and little coffins all made of sugar (alfenique) or paper mache. For an overnight trip, Patzcuáro in the State of Michoacán, is an exceptional experience. The craft and folk art market will delight all collectors. A nighttime visit to a near by country cemetery with traditional Day of the Dead decorations will leave you with a greater understanding of this very important Mexican holiday. In San Miguel de Allende, in central Mexico, instead of welcoming the dead at midnight November 1 in graveyards, they throw a weeklong public party—the Festival La Calaca (the Skull Festival). It features several parades, all-night celebrations with name DJs, art installations, dances, talks on the dead, plays, public altars in homes and the streets around the Jardin.
