Mexic-Arte Museum is thrilled to invite parade participants & volunteers to take part in the annual Vida la Vida parade and festival on Saturday, October 29th! As you may know, Viva la Vida is Austin's largest and longest-running Day of the Dead festival. The Museum has expanded the festival grounds this year and will host even more artists, musicians, and cultural groups. This year’s festival and parade will celebrate Mexico's most popular singer, the late Diva de Juarez, Juan Gabriel. We are looking for the following:
EDUCATION VOLUNTEERS will help teach both children and adults an array of art activities during the festival; these activities will run from 11am-8pm.
PARADE PROCESSION VOLUNTEERS will help with setting up and carrying forth the parade. The procession will march down historic 6th Street and end at 4th Street and Congress Avenue, marking the transition from the afternoon to the exciting evening portion of the street festival. The set-up time for the parade will be from 9am-12pm, with the parade running from 12pm-1pm.
INFORMATION VOLUNTEERS will help with the information booth during the festival hours from 12pm-8pm.
GENERAL FESTIVAL VOLUNTEERS will help with the general festival duties including setting up and loading down equipment and props, hanging up decorations, and any other help needed throughout the day. Volunteers will be needed all throughout the day, from 7am-10pm.
