Mexic-Arte Museum presents Viva la Vida Festival and Parade 2016
Austin’s largest and longest-running Day of the Dead event features a grand procession and street festival (from Congress to San Jacinto) with artist vendors, live music, food trucks, and community altars. Art activities for children and families will also be available where the public will have an opportunity to take pictures with parade props, including large-scale moving sculptures and mojigangas.
Additionally, the festival grounds have expanded this year to include Brazos Hall, where the public can enjoy even more vendors, face painting, lively performances, and a costume contest. On the Brazos Hall rooftop, the Members' Cocktail Lounge will spotlight handcrafted specialty beverages for Museum Members and patrons.
