“Las Calles Compuestas” is an annual tradition which celebrates the feast of the Immaculate Conception from November 30 to December 8 in Mexico. Atotonilco el Alto is a province of Jalisco, Mexico, that is more famously known for this celebration.
The literal translation of the name of the celebration is “Composed Streets”. The origin of the name for this tradition stems from the fact that this feast is not just celebrated in churches or the city plaza, but instead in the city streets.
Each street is adorned with paper mache flowers and cloth overhead .
Music, food, drink, and fireworks are also used as part of the celebration.
Some of my relatives recently traveled to Mexico and were able to attend this celebration. They were kind enough to share their photos so that I could share them with you.
Please feel free to ask any questions. Hope you are having a great day. 🙂
