A Day of the Dead festival saw colourful, spooky characters including a seven-foot skeleton descend on Sincil Street in Lincoln today.

The free event saw a mass of people crowd at the Cornhill Quarter area on Friday, October 28. 

Take a look at some of our photos from today’s event:

The Day of the Dead Parade was inspired by an annual Mexican holiday (Spanish: Día de Muertos), which pays tribute to the dead.

A giant skeleton led the parade with a host of playful Halloween characters and sugar skull musicians.

The event will also take place on Saturday, October 29.
