Adding to the festive outdoor gallery are wine cafés, the interactive Capital One Creative Zone for children, restaurants, and a performing arts stage with on-going multicultural musical and dance entertainment presented by The Houston Arts Alliance. The festival is showcased in front of City Hall and around Hermann Square on the streets of Walker, Bagby, and McKinney, as well as Sam Houston Park.
