Hanal Pixan Festival of Animas, Culture & Gastronomy

October 27th 6:30pm Hanal Pixan Festival of Animas Night with Film Director Miguel Ventura: Gastronomy, Film and Culture

Wednesday, October 27th 6:30pm MID CityBeat, Teya Viva Restaurant and Cine Janal are hosting a night of culture, gastronomy and film to celebrate Hanal Pixan Festival of Animas. 

In a non-pandemic year, Hanal Pixan (Day of the Dead Celebration in Maya meaning “food for the souls”) is commemorated in various ways both privately and in public with dances, alter decorations, and the large parade called Paseo de Animas, a procession where people dressed as skeletons or souls walk in a procession with candles from the cemetery to the church in La Ermita. It is a beautiful time of year to celebrate the culture and honor our loved ones who have passed on. This year some of the activities are back check here for details: however, there are still many limitations on large gatherings. 

So as a way to bring people together to learn about this holiday in a covid safer environment, we have planned the following event:
