Texas' largest Dia de los Muertos festival shows new spirit in 2018

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- No other city in Texas celebrates Day of the Dead like San Antonio. With Labor Day gone and Halloween candy starting to appear on grocery store shelves, it's officially time to plan fall festivities and travel.

Texas' biggest Dia de los Muertos festival runs October 20 through November 3, giving guests plenty of time to visit, enjoy the festivities, and get home in time for trick-or-treating. This year's festival will feature more than 20 unique events ranging from fun runs to spooky tours to glorious altar displays.

Though Dia de los Muertos is always one of San Antonio's best-attended events, this year's Tricentennial celebration will turn it into a can't-miss party. "This collective spirit offers an unforgettable way to experience the city, as well as to gain insight into this unique, historic holiday which views death with lightness and humor rather than fear," organizers say in a release.
