Soon the “paper-mache giants” will arrive to dress Mazatlan for Carnival


The director of the Municipal Institute of Culture, José Ángel Tostado, supervised the elaboration work of these monumental traditional figures of the festival.

They prepare puppets to decorate the Mazatlán Carnival 2022.

Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- Until there is a definition by the municipal authority on whether or not the International Carnival of Mazatlán will take place, the preparations must continue until the last moment.

And without a doubt, one of the most anticipated party accessories by citizens is the manufacture and placement of “monigotes”, those monumental figures that adorn the coastal promenade and other areas of the city, to make it known that the “festivals de la carne” is close; figures that are made by artists Jorge González Mata and Henry Wilson.


For this reason, this Tuesday the director of the Municipal Institute of Culture, Tourism and Arts of Mazatlan, José Ángel Tostado Quevedo, went to the workshops where these steel figures covered in paper-mâché are created, which give the city a festive touch.
