The “Day of the Dead” celebrations will take place. This traditional Mexican holiday is a celebration and remembrance of the lost loved ones. At the 6th annual Corpus Christi Dia de los Muertos you’ll find a traditional celebration along with live music, art, and food as the festival takes over several blocks of downtown.
In its seventh year, El Dia de los Muertos Street Festival has grown to almost 35,000 in attendance. The festival has expanded to include two blocks of Starr Street and two blocks of Mesquite. There are 3 stages: one for popular latin-influenced music, one for more traditional cultural performances and one for up-and-coming Texas bands. At the Kids’ Corner there are crafts, activities, games, and a rock-climbing wall supplied by Kidz Ultimate Party Zone. Student Art Associations from TAMUCC and Del Mar College provide demonstrations for the event. There is also a Hecho-a-Mano Art Expo featuring many Dia de los Muertos themed craft items, jewelry, and artworks by over 90 vendors.
