About the event

The renowned painter, Rodolfo Morales, hailed from Ocotlan de Morelos and used his wealth and influence for the betterment of that community some 21 miles (34 km) south of Oaxaca city. Today’s hike through the countryside will begin at the parish church in Santa Ana Zegache, which Mr. Morelos restored and decorated. It will conclude at the cemetery in San Antonino Castillo Velasco where the local townspeople will be busy decorating the graves of departed family members. They postpone their Day of the Dead vigil to November 3 because they are busy earlier selling the flowers used in other communities to grace their cemeteries on 31 October and 1 November.

Day of the Dead special feature!  The cemetery in San Antonino will be a busy place on November 3 as families decorate the graves of their loved ones with elaborate flower tapestries or sand paintings. People on today’s hike will spend an hour or so visiting the cemetery, which lies along the way to Ocotlan.
