Just in time for Halloween, CityPlace Doral has a new, vibrant makeover for its first-ever Day of The Dead – Día de Los Muertos – extravaganza!
Stroll through their main entrance, where you’ll be greeted by a wooden calavera and colorful papel picado banners and head to the fountain plaza which features an altar of a catrines trio adorned with flowers, marigolds and more.
Hand-crafted by Artistic Elves, sugar skulls can be found all throughout the center, even in front of your favorite restaurant or store!
It’s all to pay tribute to the rich Mexican tradition, which honors and celebrates the lives of loved ones who have died, throughout Halloween and November. In fact, CityPlace Doral is bringing two events to each month.
On Saturday, November 5, the center will host the main Day of the Dead event, with everything from face painting and food sampling from local restaurants to performances by folkloric dancers, stilt walkers, mariachis and costumed characters. It’ll run from 4 to 7 p.m. and everyone’s encouraged to dress in theme.
But first, kids of all ages (and also their families) are invited to CityPlace Doral’s sixth annual Kiddo-Ween on Saturday, October 29. As part of the celebration, which will run from 2 to 8 p.m., there will be trick-or-treating, character appearances, a scary faces photo BOO-th and an amazing Pumpkin Patch station.
Kids can also enjoy a fun zone with balloon artists, arts and crafts; a toddler zone; reading corner; costume runway fashion show; magic show; hula hoop contest, music, giveaways and so much more.
If you somehow can’t make it to either event, it’s a good thing the brightly-colored displays will be up all monthlong so don’t forget to visit and snap photos for a totally adorable fall in Miami shot!
Both celebrations are free to attend and open to the public. Click here to learn more.
