Day of the Dead

Time to remember and honor lost loved ones.

Time to celebrate Day of the Dead also known as Dia de los Muertos. Another year completed. Time to honor those we’ve lost this year and before. This holiday is a blend of indigenous Mexican and catholic traditions. Originating in Mexico with varying traditions. This holiday is being celebrated increasingly throughout Latin America, the United States and worldwide. Everyone can relate to the desire to remember and connect with lost loved ones, ancestors and people who have touched their lives. Houston is the most culturally diverse city in the United States and has a huge Mexican population. Downtown Houston is well on it’s way to becoming the true cultural heart of Houston. This is being accomplished by hard work from the Mayor’s office, local NGOs and downtown businesses and residents. We think that downtown is the perfect place to come together for this holiday. If you agree, please let us know by marking interested, going or better yet registering. Also, we humbly request that you send a personal message to one friend who would love this. The best events are about the people. You tell your best most excited friend. We’ll do the same. We will all come together downtown in the spirit of the holiday.



We will put together all of the events happening downtown for this and tell you about them.
