Mexico City Alebrije Parade

I missed the parade by a few days but all the Alebrije (giant paper-maché) are on display along Mexico City's Reforma main street.  On Sunday's the street is closed to traffic in the morning so people can exercise in the street, Best part of today was having something to look at along the walk.
 
 
 
I'll have to credit Wikipedia here since their sources were cited. "The monumental alebrijes of the parade are based on those credited to artisan Pedro Linares, who began creating fantastic, chimera-like, brightly colored creatures after dreaming them while ill. They generally combine elements of real and fantastic animals as well as humans including faces, wings, horns, hoofs, multiple heads, tails and more."  Learn more click here
