How Día de los Muertos Came to Discovery Green®

Since the park’s debut in 2008, Halloween has always been a big deal at Discovery Green. “Scream on the Green is one of our annual events that people look forward to the most, and it celebrates a very American holiday of Halloween,” says programming director Susanne Theis.
