Mexico City hosted its first ever Day of the Dead parade on Saturday (29 October) in a bid to attract more tourists to the city.

The city government and Mexican tourism officials were inspired by parts of last year’s Bond film, which were filmed in Mexico City and featured 007 chasing a villain through a Day of the Dead celebration in the historical centre.

The film’s stand-out moment was the opening scene in which Bond casually strolls through a Day of the Dead parade in Mexico City before, changing into a suit and pursuing his targets.

Hmm why has Mexico City never had a day of the dead parade. I thought this was an institution in Mexico?

People wear wooden masks, dance across the city, make arcs at the gates of the house, cook zacahuil and all of that. It is really cool, very traditional, super Mexican, but no one has heard about it.

Mexico City hosted its first ever Day of the Dead parade on Saturday (29 October) in a bid to attract more tourists to the city. Though the day is usually marked in other ways, the opening scene in the 2015 James Bond film Spectre showed Daniel Craig as Bond chasing a villain through a huge carnival procession.

Day of the Dead, or Dia de Muertos as it is known locally, is a Mexican holiday which honours the souls of the dead and is described by the Mexico Tourism Board as"one of the most representative traditions of Mexican culture". Traditionally, Mexicans have celebrated the public holiday by holding a picnic at either a shrine or at relatives' gravesides.
