"It's a lot of flowers," says Minella with a laugh. "A lot of flowers."
Decorators also added 8 new Catrina sculptures to their display. They're life-size skeleton models in elegant dresses. That brings the total of life-size catrinas and skeletons to 42 around Fiesta de Reyes. They join hundreds of painted skulls and altars around the plaza, which will host events for the holiday from Saturday through Thursday.
"It's not about scaring people, it's about joy and honoring your dearly departed," says Minella.
In addition to the decorations, the celebration will have craft stations, three performances per day of a play written for the holiday, local artists performing, pinatas, puppets, tours of the historic district, a beer garden, costume contest and public altars for people to use.
