CityPlace Doral Announces Second Annual “Dia de Los Muertos” Day of The Dead Celebration on Nov. 2
Spooks, treats and yummy eats! All souls are welcome to participate in CityPlace Doral’s Second Annual Day of The Dead – Dia de Los Muertos – celebration. The month-long activation will recognize this culturally rich Latin American tradition and bring the community together through a variety of activities and culminate with a community event.
Starting Monday, Oct. 9, CityPlace Doral will be vibrantly decorated with colorful Dia de Los Muertos themed decorations. At the main entrance, guests will be welcomed by a wooden calavera (sugar skull) and colorful papel picado (perforated paper). The Fountain Plaza will be ornamented with an altar display of a trio catrines (male skeleton figures) with flowers, marigolds, papel picado and more. Sugar skulls will be displayed at the center through the main event on Thursday, Nov. 2. All items are hand-crafted by Artistic Elves.
The main Day of the Dead event will take place on Thursday, Nov. 2, 6–9 p.m., where children and families can enjoy face painting, food sampling from local restaurants and a center-wide processional with performances by folkloric dancers, stilt walkers, mariachis and costumed characters. Guests are encouraged to dress in theme.
The evening will feature New World Symphony’s “Dia de Los Muertos: A New World Symphony Mobile WALLCAST Concert,” a live performance by NWS Fellows and a prerecorded presentation of concerts performed at the New World Center. Currently the largest mobile wall in South Florida, the 23x13 screen consists of state-of-the-art LED panels and sound system.
Throughout the month, visitors are encouraged to take festive photos or snap a selfie and tag @CityPlaceDoral for a chance to be featured on the center’s social media.
The Dia de Los Muertos art installation is an extension of The Oasis experience. The ongoing Oasis experience at CityPlace Doral’s Fountain Plaza features a relaxing, open-air atmosphere for friends and family to enjoy grab and to-go bites from CityPlace Doral’s restaurants and enjoy South Florida’s beautiful weather. The Oasis incorporates Adirondack chairs, tables, umbrellas and oversized games such as Chess, Cornhole and Connect Four.
