Las Piñatas ATX:

Come join Las Piñatas ATX! During the Dia de los Muertos Festival, from Noon to 4:00 PM, they will be providing free, candy-filled piñatas for the public to enjoy. They will be handing out numbered tickets throughout the day for those interested in breaking a piñata and will be calling the numbers in order to help minimize the need to wait in line.

Las Piñatas ATX has commissioned local artist, Michael Anthony Garcia, to create the backdrop for this event. His installation, Paneles/Panales, is inspired by the traditions and folklore of Dia de los Muertos and will welcome everyone as they enter ESB-MACC.
