Leading up to All Saints' Day, thousands of people from around the country flock to the town of Sumpango for a kite festival unlike any other. Local community members spend months constructing the gigantic kites that range from 6 ft to 60 ft in diameter. And with the sky painted with vibrant colors, the families and friends below honor the dead with a joyous celebration filled with food and drink, music, and dancing.
