Day of the Dead in the City of Puebla and Atlixco 2016

Before I went to visit Huaquechula for Día de los Muertos I spent time in the city of Puebla and then onto Atlixco. The City of Puebla had set up a Corredor de Ofrendas (Corridor of Offerings) that ran from October 14th - November 2nd throughout the city. Many of the altars were actually depictions in the history of the city, rather than altars for the departed. There were seventeen throughout town.
Atlixco which is a Puebla Magico had a large public altar in the Palacio Municipal. It was topped with a photo by Dorthea Lange of her iconic image of the migrant mother and her children taken during the depression which was interesting. Atllxco has a great market for Day of the Dead so it was fun to take it in. Every year a floral carpet is created on the zócalo in Atlixco. Normally it is made up of about 150,000 marigolds, chrysamthehums, amarath and coleus plants. It was interesting to see how Day of the Dead was observed in these two locations.
