The Mexic-Arte Museum paid special tribute to the 100th anniversary of artist Frida Kahlo. A procession of Aztec dancers, mariachis and people dressed as skeletons paraded downtown, and the event culminated outside the museum with traditional food and music, altars for deceased loved ones and ballet folklorico dancers. To commemorate Kahlo’s life, 100 participants dressed as Frida Kahlo for a look-alike contest. The Aztecs believed that a Chihuahua dog led people into the after life, therefore Chihuahuas led the parade and competed for best dressed.
