1119 W Cullerton St, Chicago, IL, Chicago, IL 60608

Get ready for the 44th Annual Muertos de la Risa- Day of the Dead Chicago Parade. Hundreds of Chicagoans apply skeleton face paint and put on traditional and colorful costumes for a parade through the Pilsen neighborhood. The procession includes many elements of a traditional Day of the Dead parade in Mexico, such as performances by Aztec dancers, Mariachi bands, and some new twists like show bands from the Chicago area. If you wish, join in the festivities and get your face painted at Dvorak Park, even if you just want to watch.
