On Saturday, October 20, the 12th edition of the Alebrijes Parade in Mexico City, organized by the Mexico Museum of Popular Art, featuring gigantic papier-mâché sculptures created by artists, artisan workshops, and enthusiasts from all over the country, took place in Mexico City.

At 12:00 PM Alebrijes of all shapes and colors were displayed at the city’s main square (Zócalo).

From there, the parade continued through the 5 de Mayo street towards Reforma Avenue and finally concluded at the Angel of Independence.

The monumental alebrijes will remain in the main sidewalks of Reforma Avenue until November 4.

The museum’s trust fund awarded the top three alebrijes, as gave out ten honorable mentions.
