The scariest time of the year has come ladies and gentleman, and it gets extra scary at the island-famous Motel Mexicola Halloween Party , celebrating The Day of the Dead! This Wednesday, 31 October 2018, Motel Mexicola takes on an all-new theme – “Apocalypto”.
In Mexico, Day of the Dead or “Dia des los Muertos” is a celebration of life and death. People go to cemeteries to be with the souls of the departed and build private altars containing the favorite foods and beverages, as well as photos and memorabilia, of the departed. The intent is to encourage visits by the souls, so the souls will hear the prayers and the comments of the living directed to them. Celebrations can take a humorous tone, as celebrants remember funny events and anecdotes about the departed.
Motel Mexicola does their motherland proud by throwing one of Bali’s biggest themed parties every year in the name of Dia de los Muertos. With this year’s theme of Apocalypto , Mexicola will be transformed into the ultimate haunted house party! Leaves, trees, hanging skulls, a huge pyramid and more to pay homage to the pre-hispanic, Aztec civilisation. Top that with food, plenty of drinks, pre-hispanic dancers, an Aztec show and of course DJs and you have yourself an epic Halloween party.
The Motel Mexicola Halloween Party is also known for its elaborate costumes, every year party-goers dress their scariest in an attempt to win the famed Best Dressed competition and receive prize(s). No one is not dressed up for this ultimate Halloween Party!
Be there… if you dare.
