The second annual Day of the Dead parade took place in Mexico City on Saturday 28 October.

More than 700 performers took part in the four-mile spectacle honouring the Mexican tradition. The inaugural parade was last year after being inspired by the event in the James Bond movie Spectre.

The parade was dedicated to the victims of the earthquake that hit Central Mexico in September this year and there was also a tribute to rescue workers.
