2023 Theme: "Alebrijes"

Voting: The public is invited to vote for their favorite pinatas in person during the exhibition.  Piñatas will also be posted on the Corpus Christi Dia de los Muertos Festival Facebook page for public voting October 11 – 30. . Awards will be announced on November 1st for the piñatas receiving the highest number of votes totaled from both Facebook and in-person voting.

Size: Piñatas must fit through a 40” wide doorway. Piñatas must not weigh over 8 pounds.


Hanger: Piñatas must be ready-to-hang with a built-in secure, sturdy hanger. K Space is not responsible for piñatas that fall because of faulty construction or faulty suspension method.


Label: Attach a label to the hanger that includes: School/Group, Teacher/Leader’s name, Leader’s email address & phone number, title, and price. We suggest printing this information largely on a printer sheet of paper and attaching it to your pinata.


Sales:  Piñatas can be priced for sale. 100% of the proceeds from sales are paid to the participating group’s leader by check. Enter “NFS“ (not for sale) as “Price” if you do not want to sell your piñata.
