There are parking lot festivals and then there’s this: Aztec and Catrina dancers, fire eaters, lucha libre wrestling, art installations, a car show, vendors, food and live music.

That’s how Mint Cannabis transformed the parking lot at its North Cave Creek Road dispensary on Nov. 12 to celebrate Día de Los Muertos. The cannabis brand partnered with entertainment promoter Lucha Voz and Catri, a local cannabis edibles company, to host the Day of the Dead festival.

It’s the third time Mint has hosted the free one-day event.
