The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – According to the Mexican Embassy, last year the celebration included about 350 people, and this year increased because the event coincided with the weekend.
An “Altar of the Dead” was held to commemorate loved ones who have departed. This year, for the first time, Ticos copied this tribute, performing a second altar to remind them of Costa Rican intellectuals and writers.
In addition, a presentation in honor of José Guadalupe Posada, was held for the 100th anniversary of his death. Posada was the creator of the character of “La Catrina”, whose painted face is now a central icon of this popular festival.
