Get Spooky at Midtown Park for Dia de los Muertos Costume Party ‘A Boo!chata Halloween’



On Wednesday, October 31st, you can celebrate Dia de los Muertos with Midtown Houston at Midtown Park for our upcoming Boo!chata Halloween event. Not only is it free, it also has tons of fun entertainment for the entire family.

Visit Midtown Park from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. for the festivities.

Here’s what you can expect:

Celebrate Boo!chata at Midtown Park

First and foremost, Boo!chata is an all-ages costume party of epic proportions. There’s no other time of the year when we get to dress up in such dramatic fashion. Might as well go all out!

Then there are the activities happening throughout the evening. You may be wondering by now: Why the name Boo!chata? Well, it’s a play on words for bachata, a genre of Latin American music that you’ll hear during the Midtown Park event. From 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Ill-Set Dee-J will get the ball rolling with bachata tunes, followed by live music in all genres from A Sure Thing.

There will also be a food truck, vendors and beer and wine sampling. Stretch your imagination while having a blast with games, face painting, a photo booth and, of course, plenty of candy. Plus, don’t forget to check out the live dance performances.

Convenient covered parking is located below the park at 2811 Travis St., at the Midtown Park Parking Facility. You can also access the area via the McGowen Station METRORail stop.

Safety First on Halloween

It’s important that as we have a good time on Halloween, we also stay safe. For kids, road safety is particularly crucial. Parents should be vigilant about street crossings and remind kids to look both ways. It’s best to have an adult keep track of everyone.

Children out after dark should also have some form of illumination on them, whether that be a glow stick or reflective tape attached to their costume. Make sure clothing is fire-resistant and makeup is non-toxic.

Finally, anyone out driving on Halloween should be especially cautious. Kids may be wearing darker outfits or walking in areas they normally wouldn’t because of the holiday. Pay attention to exiting or entering your driveway and neighborhood.

We can’t wait to see what costumes you create for Boo!chata. Let’s get spooky!
