A Move to the East End

For 2017, and following the impact of Harvey, the event is being held at Guadalupe Plaza Park in the East End.

Originally built in the 1980s, Guadalupe Plaza Park reopened after renovations in summer 2016. Although updated with modern features like splash fountains that kids love to play in, the updated design still reflects the Latin heritage of its East End neighborhood and nearby Navigation Boulevard.

  • Fabric sturdy backpacks (not clear plastic or mesh)
