The Park, the newest outdoor dining and entertainment district on The Strip, celebrates Dia de los Muertos on November 1 from 5 to 9 p.m. with a night of lively music, traditional art, decorations, face painting and more.
While energetic rhythms and vocals resonate into the crowd from an 11-piece mariachi band and 12 Latin dancers twirl to the music, guests can explore a variety of art installations including four traditional altars, created by Las Vegas Academy students, designed to honor and celebrate deceased loved ones.
Fifteen brightly colored Alebrijes, hand-made paper mache folk art sculptures, and Guerilla Kages, a portable art show featuring 45 painted canvases, also will be placed throughout the outdoor space with traditional themes such as skulls and calacas. To kick off the party at 5 p.m., Guerilla Kage artists will compete for the best Kage of the night with the winner announced at 6 p.m.
Guests are invited to enjoy social drinking with Party at The Park beverage offers of $5 beer, wine and shots at Beerhaus, Sake Rok, California Pizza Kitchen and Bruxie. The celebration will continue after the event at Diablo’s Cantina next door at Monte Carlo with Mexican cuisine favorites.
The event is complimentary and open to the public.
