Annual Parks Events 

The Parks & Recreation Department is EXCITED to bring a new event to the City of Gainesville and surrounding area.

Day of the Dead / Dia De Los Muertos!

Let's all experience together a tradition of celebrating and sharing memories of loved ones who have passed.

Come and experience a variety of activities, including arts and crafts for kiddos, lively processions and kids parade. This is a celebration with family and friends.

Indulge yourself with specialty food vendors while sitting back and enjoying live entertainment by our Mariachi Band, Folklorico Dancers and so much more.

ALL are welcome to join and we strongly encourage you to partake in traditional dress and face!
