Paseo de las Animas / Hanal Pixan 2017 festival dates?

Hi!

We are planning to travel to Mexico in late October. Would love to be in Merida for the Paseo de las Animas / Hanal Pixan but I cannot find anything that says what the date will be? It looks like it is usually the Friday before Day of the Dead, would it be safe to assume it will be on Friday Oct 27th or Saturday Oct 28th?

Thanks,

El Paseo de las Ánimas, Mérida, Yucatán, México

Viernes, 27 de Octubre, 2017

Prepárate para ser espectador de una de las fiestas más importantes en México: El Día de Muertos; El Paseo de las Ánimas reúne cada año a más de 50,000 visitantes de todo el mundo, un escenario donde se comparte y disfruta la Riqueza Cultural y Gastronómica de la Península.

La procesión de las Ánimas está conformada por jóvenes y niños caracterizados como difuntos, ataviados con el traje típico yucateco.

El público local, nacional e internacional disfrutará este ceremonial desfile al tiempo que aprecia la exposición de altares tradicionales montados con los elementos básicos que la cultura maya utiliza, como las velas negras o de colores, dulces y bebidas de la región, así como flores y cruces representativas de Yucatán.

This is an English language forum. Not everyone here can read Spanish. There is a Spanish-language version of this site, if you prefer. Anyway, I'll answer in English. The Paseo isn't a parade nor a procession, per se. You just go to be part of the crowd and walk around seeing the various ofrendas and displays. The hub is usually the Parque La Ermita (Calles 77 and 66) and surrounding streets, particularly Calle 64-A, which will be closed to traffic. Just go and follow the crowds. There are usually other events. Anything going on should be listed on the municipal government's website. I'd keep checking back to see if/when it gets updated.
