Aurora Downtown revives Sugar Skull City
Aurora Downtown celebrates the Mexican cultural tradition of Day of the Dead with the return of Sugar Skull City.
From Oct. 15 to Nov. 7, downtown businesses will feature decorated storefronts and painted windows as part of Sugar Skull City. There also is an alebrijes (folk art) scavenger hunt and an ofrenda (home altar) competition at Santori Public Library.
Aurora Downtown also features virtual content like a sugar skull making tutorial, an Aztec dance ceremony and more on Aurora Downtown's Facebook and YouTube pages.
"We welcome everyone to visit downtown and to learn about Day of the Dead while supporting Hispanic-owned businesses that are vital to our local economy," Aurora Downtown manager Marissa Amoni said.
