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.sugar-skull

This is a 19+ event and a cash bar will be available with delicious adult beverages, appetizers, and snacks.
