Mexico’s Sugar Skull tradition celebrated in Kelowna
Sugar Skull Strut, Rotary Centre for the Arts’ Signature Event, is this Friday, October 30. Inspired by El Día de los Muertos or 'Day of the Dead', it is traditionally a festive time of year in Mexico honoring past souls and loved ones.
Doors open at 8 pm and the Rotary Centre for the Arts’ usual modern architecture will be transformed into a colourful hacienda, dressed from top to bottom with flowers and banners akin to Mexico’s Sugar Skull Tradition.
Vancouver-based band, Locarno, will be playing their heavy mix of Mexican Folk, Cuban Son and Latin Soul. Kinshira will be dazzling with their light show throughout the building. Makeup Artists are onsite for pre-booked appointments to help get you ready for the night. Okanagan Photostar will have a photo booth set up so that you can capture the night. This is a 19+ event and a cash bar will be available with delicious adult beverages, appetizers, and snacks.
