Día del Niño Health Walk & Family Festival


22nd Annual Día del Niño
Costume Caminata & Family Festival

Join us on Saturday, April 21, 2018!
The National Museum of Mexican Art invites you to the 22nd Annual Día del Niño Costume Caminata and Family Festival, a celebration of our community’s children and the effort to keep them healthy and happy.

Día del Niño is an annual celebration that was created in Mexico in 1925 as a day to honor children. In Mexico, Día del Niño is celebrated on April 30th when children spend the day playing games, having fun, and eating their favorite foods.

Costume Caminata
We’re kicking off the festivities with a Costume Caminata (costumed fun walk) at 10:00 am around Harrison Park. Children are encouraged to dress up as their favorite superhero and parents are invited to decorate their strollers.

Family Festival
This year, we are thrilled to bring the celebration back to the National Museum of Mexican Art and throughout Harrison Park. We have a full day of fun planned for the entire family, including:

  • Fitness activities
  • Hands-on art projects
  • Free health screenings
  • Wellness education
  • Live performances
