The most recent James Bond film, Spectre, features a now iconic scene set at the Dia de los Muertos parade held in Mexico City. That parade didn’t actually exist…until now!

Set in the historic center of Mexico City, the parade in the movie was held to celebrate the Day of the Dead. This year, the parade will be brought to life in the city on October 29, with a celebration being held inspired by that depicted in Spectre.

Costumes and props from the movie will be used in the parade, which departs from the Monumento a la Independencia at 3pm. Lasting three hours, the procession will then head down Paseo de la Reforma before finishing up in the main square, Zocalo.

Onlookers can enjoy performances from dancers, giant puppets and musicians as the parade made famous by James Bond takes to the streets for the first time.
