Aurora Downtown will be turning downtown into Sugar Skull City from October 15 to November 15 to coincide with Day of the Dead events during First Fridays on November 6.
Sugar Skull City will appeal to all ages and afford downtown businesses an opportunity to decorate their storefront, participate in a scavenger hunt, and have activities for customers that are extended and crowd-free while respecting both COVID-19 state guidelines and an honored cultural and local tradition.
To that end, Aurora Downtown will not be hosting its annual Halloween Trick or Treat event at downtown businesses.
Aurora Downtown announced a call for artists as part of Sugar Skull City. Artists of all skill levels are invited to submit a 12 x 18 work depicting a sugar skull. Full details can be found online at auroradowntown.org.
