The Alebrijes Parade

It’s fast becoming one of the big annual events of Mexico City, despite being only in its third year. The Alebrijes are Dream or Fantasy creatures, the origins of which can be learned about on the Wikipedia page. A lot of effort goes into making these huge, weird and slightly wonderful creations. Not so much effort, this year at least, went into making trolleys strong enough to transport them the full length of Reforma. Several times we heard loud bangs that turned out to be exploding tyres, not firecrackers as we first thought. Click here to see the photos.Alebrijes
