Día de los Muertos is here, and over the next two weekends, you’ll get the chance to remember and celebrate in Houston.

This Saturday, the Magnolia Park Día de los Muertos Parade & Festival will celebrate its tenth anniversary in the East End.

What started out as a block party has grown into a colorful, community-wide celebration, with thousands of attendees.

The parade begins at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Hidalgo Park, located at 7000 Avenue Q in Houston.

The festival, which celebrates the holiday’s artistic significance with live performances, shopping and food, runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Then, on Saturday, Nov. 4, the Houston Dia de Los Muertos Parade & Festival will return to Downtown Houston.

The third annual festival is the city’s latest Dia de Los Muertos tradition, celebrating the living and honoring our beloved with a free family festival at Sam Houston Park.

The festival, which features live music and performances, concessions, arts and crafts, runs from 2-10 p.m. Sam Houston Park is located at 1000 Bagby, in Houston.

After a cancellation due to Astros World Series play in 2022, the Downtown Dia de Los Muertos Parade is set to return at 7 p.m., kicking off at Bagby at Lamar.
