A taste of Mexico in Russia

Mexico (Notimex) - Mexico's Tourism Promotion Council carried out a Day of the Dead parade in Moscow this week, aiming to treat football fans from around the world to one of Mexico's top annual traditions. 

"The streets of Moscow will be filled with this ancient festivity, which has been celebrated in Mexico since Pre-Hispanic times," the Council said. 

During the event, the Council invited people to visit Mexico for Day of the Dead in November. 

The parade began at Casa México, and ended at Moscow's Red Square. At the end of the parade, the event continued with live mariachis and a large shrine.
