Sponsored by Mexic-Arte Museum, the annual Viva la Vida Festival – Austin’s largest and longest-running Dia de los Muertos event – features a parade, a street festival, education activities, and art exhibits.

The parade starts at noon but costumed participants will gather on 5th Street between I-35 Northbound Frontage Road and Waller Street, traveling west on 6th Street to the festival location at 4th Street and Congress.

For the best opportunity to take portraits BEFORE the parade starts, the NAPfS club will meet-up at the staging location between 10:30-11 a.m.

Afterwards we’ll gather for lunch to relax, share stories, and check out everyone’s images.

This NAPfS Field Trip is an excellent opportunity for you to make photos to submit in the November 2017 Faces of Man theme competition.

The October 2017 Viva la Vida Field Trip is being lead by Russ Morris.
