An annual parade is celebrated by locals and tourists.
It's here that you'll find scary and pretty portrayals of skeletons.
Red is a favourite colour here.
People of all ages participate in the festival.
Participants throw red colour one each other as they celebrate.
It's not rare to see women dressed in their wedding gowns with gory make up on. This young woman decided to get her pet along too.
