The candlelight Novenario processions are held nightly for nine evenings, leading up to the Day of the Dead. The traditional, pre-Columbian procession evokes special memories of deceased loved ones with colorful pageantry and indigenous blessings.

Procession includes: Grupo Tartalejos (an indigenous Aztec group leading the procession with incense and ceremonial blessing), Aztec Dancers, and “Living Muertos” – participants dress up as skeletons.

Following each procession, free pan de muerto (sweet pastry) is served (first to the performers, then to the assembled).
